Education failing to fight phishing

Source: vnunet
Summary: Joseph Sullivan, associate general council of PayPal, told the e-Crime Congress in London today that relying on education alone will not stop phishing and that an integrated campaign is needed to stamp out the menace. William Beer, European director of Symantec's security practice, says that education needs to be varied and targeted to particular demographics. Mention is made of a phishing attack in which targets were directed to phone a fake call centre rather than visit a fake website.
