Dr Murdoch interviewed by BBC Radio 4 on Phishing Emails [Updated]

Dr Steven Murdoch was interviewed on the You and Yours programme on BBC Radio 4. The segment was discussing Phishing Emails that include the recipient's mailing address in the text, so as to appear more convincing. This data often originates from retailer sites being hacked said Dr Murdoch. The interview is also featured in a BBC news article on the same issue.

Update: There is further coverage on the scam from the BBC here, including quotes from Dr Murdoch:

"It also appears to be quite widespread - I've heard about it from multiple sources so it seems like they were fairly successful getting a lot of these sent out."

Listen to the interview here [starts at 33m24s].
