A new study by PandaLabs found that scammers are creating 57,000 new web addressed every week:
According to PandaLabs, in an average week hackers use some 375 different high-profile names and company brands, nearly two-thirds of them banks. A further 27 percent are designed to look as if they belong to online stores or auction sites.
The most frequently used keywords are eBay, Western Union and Visa, followed by Amazon, Bank of America, Paypal and the US revenue service.
"The problem is that when you visit a website through search engines, it can be difficult for users to know whether it is genuine or not," says Luis Corrons, technical director of PandaLabs.
