APWG: Number of phishing sites has decreased – crimeware is here to stay

First time in the history of Anti-Phishing Working Group (aka APWG) the number of phishing reports received and new phishing sites discovered decreased at the end of period (i.e. Mar ’08).

But don’t say “We won the race – at last” yet. :( The number of crimeware-spreading URLs rose to a new record.
Nothing special when digging the statistics of top hosting countries – U.S., China, Russia, etc. But hey, France is listed too.
