These incidents were the result of emails received by the victims requesting that they supply personal bank account information to a Web site or risk having their accounts closed. The Web site was, of course, not legitimate, and attackers used the information collected there to transfer funds from the victims’ accounts. The company has recently upgraded all of the company workstations to Windows 7, and you are examining the capabilities of the SmartScreen Filter in the Internet Explorer 8.
