A new phishing attack is currently targeting customers of Lloyds TSB with fake emails carrying malicious attachments. The email claims to come from the bank's security team with a subject of "You have an incoming payment." The body of the message however is lacking content and the spelling is poor. The message reads "This massage [sic.] was sent by LloydsTSB Security team Proceed Security Via Attachment."

By clicking on the attached document (Lloydstsb-onlinebanking.html) will display a page that shows the Lloyds TSB branding and contains a more detailed message with a login dialog. At this point the victim loses their username and password to the scam's creator.

Operations Director, Ian Chilvers said "If in doubt don't open a email or it's attachments unless you truly trust the sender of that email. Never click on links in a email, it's always better to manually type in the address of your bank that way you know you are going to the correct site".
