Widespread Reports of Phishing Attacks on IndianTax Sites

Symantec has reported widespread incidents of phishing scam emails which point to fake Income Tax Department websites, taking obvious advantage of the returns filing season. The emails themselves claim that users have been identified as eligible for tax refunds. These sites, as expected, look identical to the official IT department website, but users are pointed to a form that asks for bank account details and/ or credit card authentication information.

Users are warned to be alert for such kinds of emails, verify the URLs that embedded links point to, and never part with sensitive information unless being absolutely sure of the site.
