Fake MTGox Website Designed to Steal Username and Password

Yahoo and Bing search engines have been hit hard with a phishing scam. Persons using these search engines to search for the keyword "Mt Gox", searching for the popular Bitcoin exchange website, ended up with top search results with links to the fake Mt.Gox website: "MtPox.com".

Please continue below.

The phishing website "Mtpox.com", is an exact replica of the legitimate Bitcoin exchange website http://www.MTgox.com, and was designed to steal the user names and passwords for the users of this legitimate website.
