New type of phishing could pose danger for mobile phone users

Here's a pretty scary story - security experts are issuing dire warnings of a new type of phishing that could siphon bank details from mobile phone users. This is "Mophophishing", where attackers send out fake banking applications to unsuspecting mobile phone users.

The users then type their account details into the application thinking they were accessing their accounts when they were actually sending their personal details back to the hacker.
Seemingly, this kind of attack is very difficult to detect, and is relatively straightforward to put together.
