phishing for BIG phish

This report in the New York Times today explains how the annoying emails/spam/phishing messages we get are focusing on the exec of big business.  it is interesting since we know that many times the first years of the phishing phenomena have been to target AS MANY people as possible to then send out more “garbage”.  now they are focusing on specific individuals (about 2000 at this point) that if their passwords, identity or information is compromised could affect large bank accounts as well as a lot of corporate information and client data
Tricky.
