French president Sarkozy falls victim to phishing fraud
A successful phishing sting on French president Nicolas Sarkozy has prompted a government condemnation of online security on the Internet.
French police have arrested six people in their investigation into the high-profile fraud attack on President Sarkozy, but believe they are only minor figures in a wider plot. What's more interesting is the
internal bank investigation at the SocGen branch where he holds his account. Apparently more than 150 staff members have consulted the account, and the bank suspects that many
were just checking it out for fun.
This is not good news for SocGen, given the reputational damage they suffered last time they had
a lapse in internal controls. But I suppose you can't blame the bank staff for being curious. After all, they do pay the man's wages.
