RSA has coined this as a "Chat-in-the-Middle" phishing attack and it is first executed through routine means but then presents a more advanced layer of perpetrating online fraud. The phishing attacks may dupe bank customers into entering their usernames and passwords into an ordinary phishing site but the addition of a bogus live chat support window can obtain even more credentials via a live chat session initiated by fraudsters.

Tech firms turn to social media to reach consumers
2008-11-20 04:44:00
Source: ReutersBy Gabriel MadwayRecognizing the limits of traditional advertising, established technology companies are diving headlong into the sometimes chaotic landscape of social media to promote their products. Companies ranging from PC maker Dell Inc to storage equipment maker NetApp Inc are increasingly turning to outside blogs, viral videos and websites such as FaceBook, Twitter, FriendFeed and Digg -- and their tens of millions of users -- to reach consumers. These social networking sites harness the age-old power of the word-of-mouth recommendation and can be potent marketing tools. If nothing else, they demand a higher level of consumer engagement than conventional ads. "This is 180 degrees from that sort of advertising," said Debra Aho Williamson, a senior analyst at eMarketer. "Having a conversation with them (consumers) is a very new skill."

What's New With China's Consumers
2008-10-13 20:03:00
McKinsey is just out with a new and very comprehensive survey and analysis of the Chinese consumer, entitled, "What's new with the Chinese consumer" (free registration required). Its subtitle is that "It’s hard for brand managers to keep pace with the shifting attitudes of Chinese consumers. But some trends can be discerned amid the noise." The upshot is that brand loyalty seems to be weakening in China and word of mouth is more important than television ads. Unfortunately, this survey was before the Sanlu milk scandal which must have impacted consumer sentiment. Go here to learn all.
US Drug Companies Abuse US Consumers
2008-09-02 07:53:00
The latest death toll figures from Hurricane Katrina can be seen on this website here. The famous Russian neo-Nazi video is on this blog here.Updated September 2:In the comments section to the The Market Virus post, James Schipper notes: Drugs are not a natural monopoly, so why are pharmaceutical companies making such large profits? Answer: patents. Once a pharmaceutical company has a patent on a drug, it has a monopoly for several years. The reason for this patent system is that it is thought to encourage research and thereby allow consumers to gain access to new drugs.There is no doubt that a lot of new drugs are coming on the market, but whether the patent system ultimately has more advantages than disadvantages is hard to say. What is certain is that it keeps drug prices high and also encourages wasteful research for near-duplicates.If company A develops a new drug against, say, headaches and acquires a patent on it, then company B can't compete directly against it by selling t...

clipped from uk.reuters.comWASHINGTON (Reuters) - Even before debate began on Monday on the first comprehensive climate change bill to reach the Senate floor, the White House said President George W. Bush would veto it in its current form.clipped from www.upi.comPresident George Bush Monday criticized sweeping climate change legislation being considered by the U.S. Senate, saying it would cost taxpayers $6 trillion."There's a much better way to address the environment than imposing these costs on job creators, which will ultimately have to be borne by American consumers," Bush said after a meeting with economists in Washington. "And I urge the Congress to be very careful about running up enormous costs for future generations of Americans."
