Microsoft pursuing phishers in Europe

By Justin Mann on
Microsoft is one of many companies that have put a big focus on anti-phishing recently, as it is quickly becoming one of the most common things plaguing Internet users. Microsoft is now planning to take the fight to Europe, with legal cases being filed against fraudsters in other countries. Most especially, they are targeting those who make phony sites based off of Microsoft services, like MSN and hotmail. Microsoft is already actively doing the same in the U.S., but this is the first time they've looked to do it in other countries where laws may be much different, and it likely will not be an easy task. Phishing is something that harms businesses and consumers alike, however, and is something must be done.
