Phishers Up The Ante And Go After Online Poker Players

Websense warns that phishers are targeting online poker players who use the Party Poker site.

Websense Security Labs is warning users who play online poker to beware of a new phishing scheme.

The security company posted an online notice that its analysts have received reports of a phishing attack that targets users of Party Poker.

Users receive a spoofed e-mail message claiming that a new online gambling law will be passed. Users are then told they need to log into their Party Poker account to view the impact the new law will have on them. The fraudulent e-mail, according to Websense, provides a link to a phishing site that attempts to collect personal and account information.

The phishing site is hosted in the United States and was up when the alert was posted, Websense reports.

Websense has an image of the fraudulent e-mail on its Web site.
