Lots of Phishes and new twists

Jul 02 2010 Published by jayras under Posts

Over the past couple of days I’ve gotten 7 phishes.

Mainly the usual stuff with Account Changes, Beta sign ups, banned IP’s

But then there’s a new one.  Well, not really new…its very similar to “In view of recent…” but with a “Good Times” twist:

New Phish

My favorite part of the new one:

your account occurred in the number of illegal transactions in a very long period of time.

Ooooh…sends chills up your spine.  The legal speak of it is just flawless and is so ominous you just HAVE to act now and click the link.

OK, so I jest…its Engrish in its finest form and I don’t know WTF they are talking about.

————————————————————————————————————

New fashion in the Phishing word:  Incident or Case Numbers.

Lately, I’m getting a lot of “Issue #” or “Case #” or “Indicdent #” on the end of the subjects of the phishes.

I’m guessing this is an attempt to make them sound much more official.  Cause after all there is a number I can no reference if I need to talk to somebody about the issue.

And I’m sure when I call Blizzard and give them this number it’ll make sense to them…or NOT.

Domains being used by these Phishers are getting more creative:

  • batltle.net
  • www.worldefwaroraft.com
  • www.wow-identification.com

Then there’s this idiot:

www.worldofwarcraft-logins-blizzardaccounts.com:8088

Well, create a nice domain that could conceivably make someone think its legit.

Then hook up the website on port 8088

So, if you are behind any firewall or proxy at all there is a 94.325% chance you can’t even get to the website.

(For those of you that aren’t as geeky as I am…Web Traffic goes on port 80, and pretty much anything over 900 is blocked automatically by firewalls.  There used to be a convention used by some webmasters to put in dev websites up on port 8080, but port 8088 would be foreign to anyone.)

Oh well, one more chance someone mistakenly clicks a link won’t get hacked.

————————————————————————————————————–

Speaking of which, let me digress for a few minutes.

Apparently users (or maybe its the tech support) of  “My Space” seem to have the complete wrong definition of “getting phished”

Do a search on Twitter for “Phished” and you get a ton of posts by My Space users who have gotten hacked and people taking over their accounts but they always post something like “sheesh…I got phished again”

Either that, or they are getting phished and are just to light headed to stop clicking links in e-mails?

Recycling Phises and a drugged up Yoda Phish.

Jun 22 2010 Published by jayras under Posts

Well, since my last post I got 5 phishes.  So I guess they are still out there to get me.

I got a new Phish…about Aion…which I have never played.

Here it is.

The first sentence of this Phish makes it sound like its Yoda, on Acid, that was hit by a 2X4 in the back of the head.

Then…

I got 2 more Beta invites for the Cataclysm Beta.  Content is nothing special, just a copy paste from the Cataclysm page.

One of them, however, forgot to change the subject.  It was “Account Administration”

Sloppy…sloppy…sloppy…

I got two Phishes that I haven’t seen in a very long time.  One was the one that stated my payment method has violated 3rd parties.

I’m still trying to figure out what that could possibly mean.  Are they talking about a stolen credit card?  Or is a Mastercard, from Key Bank, in Dogspatch, CA offending to the sensibilities of the billing system?

Other one was a “You’re selling your account” Phish…blah.

If that wasn’t all….

On the bus ride to work this morning I sneezed.

No big deal right?

Well, when I sneezed I got this sharp, BURNING, pain in my lower back/side

It hurt like a bugger!

Then 20 minutes later I sneezed again, and it hurt WORSE.

So I went to the doctor, they said it was probably nothing more than straining a muscle, or worse case I ripped a muscle or tendon.  They shot me up with Dilaudid, which made me really loopy, but like Vicodin made my nose itch like a son of a bitch.

Have to add that to a list of drugs to avoid.

They gave me a prescription of Oxycodone, which doesn’t make my nose itch.  Theoretically I can go to work tomorrow, if I can stand walking…we’ll see.

YEAH ME!

I now understand…

I ran across this Picture < http://failblog.org/2010/06/01/epic-fail-photos-purchase-fail/ >

And I’m still in shock.

But, then again, it’s now dawned on me how these Phishes can work.  I now understand that there are people out there in this world that will fall for ANYTHING.

If a couple can be duped into…

paying $500 for a paper copy of a real license plate…

and stick it on their car with band aids…

from a house…

with an old couch on the porch…

and think that’s perfectly valid and legal…

then I can believe that there are people this world that think this < Phish: The problem of account invasion is getting worse and worse >

Is a valid e-mail…

from the actual company…

talking about a real product…

that can be delivered by e-mail…

and the links should be completely trusted.

Its baffling and a little sad  but I now get it.

Hopefully my view on things, and my humorous slant on these e-mail will help educate more people.

If I can just stop one person on clicking the link, then maybe I can regain some hope.

Yesterday I only managed to get one Phish e-mail, and it was the old Account Change phish, but a new variant has shown up.

This time I was told my Authenticator was reset.

Confusingly enough, if I did this on purpose I’m told to disregard the e-mail, but then I’m told that resetting your authenticator will prevent you from being able to login to my account.

Come on guys…which one is it?  Do I disregard or do I have to do something?

…oh ya…its not Blizzard, so nevermind.
