PayPal most phished, Facebook most blocked

Posted on 25 January 2011.

OpenDNS released statistics about which websites were commonly blocked and which websites users were frequently given access to - in 2010. The report additionally details the companies online scammers targeted in 2010, as well as where the majority of phishing websites were hosted.


.... PayPal continues to be the most frequent target of phishing websites; it was targeted nine times more frequently than the next most frequent target, Facebook; 45 percent of all phishing attempts made in 2010 were targeting PayPal. ...


So much (again) for Donahoe's blatantly false claim that PP phishing is down by a whopping 80%.
Not to mention the fact that ebay employees themselves fell victim to phishing attacks and caused millions of dollars of loss to eb-pp and the users.   laughing.gif
