Abstract:
Phishing, it starts with “Ph” for a reason. Some best practices to detect and prevent for some new point of attack methods.

When banks and other financial institutions tell their customers to only give personal information (e.g.: Credit Card, Social Security Number, ETC) via the telephone, because of online attacks from phishers, that's when phishers get creative and go back to what the root of phishing has been and blend it with some new technologies.
