My good buddy Kingpin (who does the computer goodly) came across an ebay Phisher. Well – only one good thing to do – fight back. Here’s his explanation:
A friend of mine forwarded an email that was phishing for ebay login credentials. The submit button executes a mail prog located at sistemas.dglnet.com.br/cgi-bin/mailto.exe, and sends an email to firstname.lastname@example.org apparently containing your username and password. Finally it redirects you to eBay’s real site where it’s not obvious that something bad just happened.
I decided to take the code the phisher used to create my own form to spam the phisher. The result is what you see below. Feel free to view the source.
