Hi all.

This is a phishing technique I had not run across before. I've only found one reference to it in an afternoon of google searching (http://ficoforums.myfico.com/t5/forums/forumtopicprintpage/board-id/creditcard/message-id/366867/print-single-message/false/page/1)

My user went to pay a credit card bill at discover card. He went direct; not responding to an email or any type of link. Soon after logging in he got a pop-up wanting verification of his SSN, CC#, CCV, etc. He was able to repeat the scam with three browsers (IE, Chrome, Firefox). (personal computer does not have this behavior) The company anti-virus is TrendMicro, so we kicked off a full scan and we'll see what the results are.

Assuming TrendMicro can't clean this (since it got past the real-time scanner), I wanted to get an idea of what this could be and the best approach to clean it up.
