TrustDefender Protects Users from Smart Redirection Phishing Attack

“Smart Redirection Phishing Attack proves that the Internet Security needs new, more complete solutions.”

A new Smart Redirection Phishing Attack has emerged which easily outsmarts the current crop of security technologies is rapidly becoming a very big problem for today’s Internet users. This is especially worrying given recent findings that many high-profile Web sites are vulnerable to this attack, with Yahoo’s site one of the many that is subject, with users able to be tricked into submitting their personal information to ‘Phishers.’

Smart Redirection Phishing Attacks typically begin with a legitimate Website -- e.g. the Yahoo! Login Page. The user is then redirected to the Phishing Website at a later stage. Because the starting point is a legitimate website, users tend to trust the whole process -- with fatal results.

TrustDefender, with its unique technology, is protecting the Home User as well as the Online Business from all kinds of different online Fraud Attacks. Its GAP Protection together with the Secure Lockdown provides a rock-solid solution to this problem -- something that no other security software or service can offer today.

“TrustDefender was designed to provide 100% secure protection, which is why we never followed the traditional ’blacklisting’ or a ‘heuristic approach’, given their inherent weaknesses. We wanted to have a system in place that can unambiguously tell the Home User whether he or she is connected to the right server, but also tell the Online Business Provider whether the Home User’s Computer is safe and secure. This is our GAP Protection and the Secure Lockdown solution. No heuristic solution will ever be able to deliver the same accuracy. We have always believed that Phishing Attacks created by the ‘bad guys’ have always been an incredible serious threat -- despite badly worded emails. The fact that these malicious programmers continue developing new Phishing Techniques is doubly worrying. We saw no other solution, so we decided to create our own, and we put a system in place that provides guaranteed protection. TrustDefender is the solution to this very real modern-day problem”, explains Alex Horst, Chief Software Architect.
