FBI Director Almost a Phishing Victim

The fact that FBI Director Robert Muller almost fell victim to an online banking phishing scam which he said was started with an authentic looking email should be very scary news for all of us. After all, this isn't a temp at the FBI, this is the person who is in charge of the organization we all trust to protect us from such scams. If we can't bank, shop and exchange goods and services online as efficiently as possible we all lose. While we should all be thrilled about the 33 arrested in an FBI phishing ring sting earlier this month dubbed operation "phish fry", there is a lot more work to do. We need a massive consumer education campaign, far better consumer protections and most importantly we need more stings and very strict laws aimed at online thieves and thugs as well as better international cooperation in bringing these people to justice.
