Google adwords phishing attempt

by

In part 4 (or is it 5 or 6) of our coverage of Google abuse we present a phishing attack targeting adwords users.  Actually it’s just a shade over 2 years since we last discussed adwords phishing attacks.  This one almost had us convinced for about half a second with some fine phishing touches:

  • It only targets users of adwords – there can’t be too many of those, right?
  • The bold date from the same day
  • The link is somewhat convincing: “http://adwords.google-dm.com/…..”
  • The link in the fine-print section is genuine
  • English is not terribly awful
