I was recently interviewed on News Channel 5 about Tabnabbing which is a new technique that can be used for phishing. Tabnabbing is where one of your browser tabs changes, usually without your knowledge, to an attacker controlled website. Usually the website changes to something that looks familiar to the victim like Gmail, Facebook or Twitter. This can usually trick the victim to think that they have been logged out of a website. If the victim enters their credentials into the phishing site they are sent to the attacker. The credentials are then harvested and the victim is forwarded to the legitimate web site.
