Sylwan Journal is hijacked + Phishing to steal your credit card

User Rating:  / 23

Warning! The Polish journal of "Sylwan" (ISSN: 0039-7660) is hijacked by cyber-criminals. But it is not a simple hijack attempt. I think they also made a phishing plan to steal your credit card information to withdraw money from your bank account.
