Brand-name spoofing still a popular tactic to lure victims into giving up their login credentials and payment card information, new data from Barracuda Networks shows.

Cybercriminals continue to go to phishing as their initial attack vector:  Barracuda Networks alone has blocked more than 3.2 million phishing emails since May 1, according to the security firm.

The email security firm filtered some 1.5 million phishing emails and more than 10,000 unique phishes in May, and already has blocked 1.7 million just in June, with more than 2,000 different phishes.
