Phishing getting worse

If you want to keep track of how prevelent phishing attacks are from month to month (and I do) then you should check AntiPhishing.org.  The site is pretty meager in most regards, but the front page has a bar chart that is pretty staggering when you realize that they are only measuring people who have actually figured out that there is a phishing attack in progress (a fraction of the population I am sure) and further restricted by the fact that those astute people had to know about and be willing to take the time to report it to AntiPhishing.org.

I find these statistics interesting to have as spin seems to creep into everything nowadays.  I like to lay my hands on hard numbers and make up my own mind.
