A large scale spam operation aimed at getting unsuspecting people's passwords to their online banking sites, eBay and PayPal accounts and other points of interest on the web. Usually involves an alarming email message informing the recipient that his account's been compromised or a security upgrade in in progress that contains a link to a fake web site that's been made to look like the real thing. The email insists that in order to keep your account active, you MUST click the link and log in - thus giving the people running the phishing expedition access to your account.
