Phisher using Google

Aas pointed out on Jesper's blog today Phishing Scammers are now using Google to bounce links and slightly disguise where we are being sent. Just one more thing to worry about when you are trying to train users to be careful when following links - especially from Email.

Notice that at first glance these links appear to be going to Google, but then look to the QueryString being passed, which includes a url to which Google will bounce the request. The same occurs for MSN and ebayobjects.com according to Jesper.
