Many people think that websites of Financial Institutions and banks are the top phished sites. It is logical also. These are the sites, where the user data is most sensitive. Just a few clicks and lots of money can change hands, if the login credentials of a user are phished to a rogue person.
However, the Microsoft Security Intelligence Report (SIR) has stated that the top phished sites are Social Networking sites.
SIR provides an in-depth perspective on the changing threat landscape including software vulnerability disclosures and exploits, malicious software (malware), and potentially unwanted software. Using data derived from hundreds of millions of Windows computers, and some of the busiest online services on the Internet, this report also provides a detailed analysis of the threat landscape and the changing face of threats and countermeasures and includes updated data on privacy and breach notifications.
There are lots of interesting observations and findings in this report. You can download and read the complete report here.
