Default ICICI Bank phishing site received today in mail

Just received a phishing mail for ICICI Bank website. See link :
ICICI Bank
( Only see the site dont use it )

After great difficulty found an email address on ICICI website to which I forwarded the mail for their information and action. It would have been appropriate for ICICI to give proper links for reporting such attacks so that they can be proactive.

LOL. They are too ambitious. They want you to give them all the details on the first page itself.

IP changes if you restart the modem. That should be alright I guess.

Sometimes just visiting these sites downloads keyloggers or trojans. I think the mods must delete that link - you never know what your comp may pick up.

The actual ICICI Bank netbanking link - https://infinity.icicibank.co.in/Login.jsp - has a link to report suspicious email...

Firefox blocks the website. I couldn't even click on 'Ignore Warning' and proceed to check out the site, why?

Latest version of Opera gives below warning
Fraud Warning


The page you are trying to open has been reported as fraudulent. It will likely attempt to trick you into sharing personal or financial information. Opera Software strongly discourages visiting this page.

Flock and firefox opened that site as well as IExplorer!

Even Chrome blocked that site just now. I have Spybot anti-spyware installed and there is something called Immunization which is applied to the browsers; this I think is what blocked the site.

I got a mail from so called HDFCBANK stating something about my net statement. I innocently clicked on the link and was immediately blocked by Firefox to open the website. Obviously it was a phishing website and I didn't bother to read the content of the mail or else it would have been absolutely clear to me immediately. Dush, even the IT minds can be beguiled by these emails. Scary Thought !!! :O
