I smell a phish - phishy facts

You've probably guessed by now that I'm a phish phanatic. Where would this blog be without them? I've discovered a list of the phishiest countries here on the Netcraft website.

As of today, 9 Nov 08, the phishiest country is the Russian Federation, which is responsible 3.9% of known phishing sites. This is followed at a respectful distance by Romania, which is responsible for 2.9% of phishing websites and Turkey where 2.6% of phishing sites originate.

Phishing sites are usually sites that ask you to enter personal details - most often fake bank websites, fake Ebay sites or fake anything where you are asked to enter a username and password to access something financial.
