New phishing trick: Base10 encoding

New phishing trick: Base10 encoding

Antispam vendor Mailfrontier reports they have seen a new phishing trick designed to mask a fraudulent URL's true IP address. Using Base10 encoding, phishers are masking their true IP addresses with a string of numbers that recipients might not realize are fraudulent. Mailfrontier offers an example: if you view the source for an HTML e-mail with a supposed link to eBay, you might see http: //1122103063/~webmail/:/signin.ebay.com/cgi-bin/login/index.htm, however, the real non-Base10 encoded IP Address is 66.225.239.23 and has nothing to do with the online auction giant.
