Don’t Click that Google URL – It’s a Trap!

Rsnake has found someone using the Google Redirect to phish for Ebay accounts:

Well it’s official and no longer just conjecture. Google’s redirection hole is now being used as a phishing redirector. I don’t know how anyone could reasonablly argue that this isn’t a problem now. It’s not me just spouting what could be or what might be, this is actually happening.

He then shows the urls that is being used in spam emails to trick people into giving up their Ebay Account info (phishing).

Seriously, it’s past time for Google to act on this. Google should have been on this faster than . . .

Both comments and pings are currently closed.

    I am not able to get this to work as of this morning. It is giving me a 403 Forbidden error.

    Interestingly enough, when I tried to follow that ebay link, Firefox popuped up warning me that the link could be fraudulent.
