ICICI Bank phishing mail
October 31, 2006

Today a new ICICI Bank phishing mail was delivered to my mail box. At first glance it looked quite original as my Eudora mail box showed the information as follows:

Mail received from: customercare@icici.com

Subject: Alerts !!! Upgrade And Secure Your Online Account Immediately.

After reading the message I doubt it was from ICICI and hence tried and visited the link given in the message.

https://infinity.icicibank.co.in/loginrestore-session/server

It took me to the hidden link which was as:

http://www.icicisecureserver.com/index.html

The site resolves to 38.113.1.111 IP Address which is located somewere in US.

I was happy to see that the site was closed down and the browser showed error of “Page Not Found”. Good to see that care has been taken to close down such a site in very short span. It was great on the part of ICICI Bank as it is India’s largest private sector bank. 🙂
