[PHISHING] Security notification regarding your Internet Banking

Following is a new phishing attack for Bank Account details, and this time it is targeted towards Bank of India customers!!

>>>>>>> The text shown as a link to the official website of the bank (http://www.bankofindia.com/web/internetbank.aspx) is actually linked to a FAKE WEB PAGE at http://starconnectcbs-bankofindia.limewebs.com/web/internetbank.php

It seems that now the fake page has been removed from the server, and is replaced with a new page with the following alert.

"
This site has been deactivated."

Probably this has been done by the site admin after getting convinced with the ill motive behind it!
