Internet fraudsters make simultaneous attack on four French banks

Major phishing aimed at four French banks.

An AFP newswire story on Yahoo! News reports that:

Four major French banks have issued warnings to their clients after Internet fraudsters made a simultaneous attempt to gain access to confidential customer information, a bank spokeswoman said.

BNP Paribas, Societe Generale, CCF and CIC all issued warnings to their clients via their websites after the massive attempted fraud on Friday which police are investigating.

The fraud involved an unsolicited or "spam" email to potential bank clients which appeared to come from a bank and which asked for "confirmation" of confidential account details on the bank's Internet site, which was a fake copy.
