I've mentioned in the past that phishing extends far beyond online banks. This story details the recent success of phishing attacks aimed at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, a technology lab for the U.S. Department of Energy. This incident reminds us that any business with whom people share potentially valuable information is a potential phishing target. The phishers will continue to explore new opportunities and continue to find successful targets. Even businesses that are not phishing targets today should set up their site security as if they will are - or will become one soon.
