Phishing eBay Through Doubleclick

A couple of weeks ago there were reports of a bug at eBay.com that allowed phishers to create links to their own sites that redirected through ebay.com. Unless you looked closely at the link source, users clicking these links would assume they were visiting eBay but would wind up at the spoof site instead.

This one showed up in my inbox today – it takes advantage of a similar “bug”, but this time redirecting through ebay.doubleclick.net.
