Phishing attack that mimics currently browsed site?
Not sure this is an appropriate forum for this, but maybe some fellow SPers have come across this and can point me in the right direction...
I have a Lenovo laptop running Windows 7, and have started experiencing pop-up windows with phishing attacks/attempts when I do an online purchase. The pop-up is one of those slightly different URL windows that looks very much like the site I'm actually browsing. Not unlike many phishing sites/pages. However in this case the page is customized to match the site I'm on, for example Wells Fargo. I also went to make a purchase on the Philadelphia Phillies website and the same thing happened. I got a phishing pop-up that looks like it's a legitimate part of the Phillies site.
McAfee software running on the computer is up-to-date and detects no viruses or spyware.
What else could this be? Anyone ever see such a sophisticated phishing mechanism before?
