PayPal Phishers Hacked Website Operated By World Bank

Hackers have penetrated a website operated by World Bank Group and were able to host a PayPal phishing site there. By doing so, the fraudulent site was benefiting from a valid Extended Validation SSL certificate.
The phishing website was hosted on Climate-Smart Planning Platform website ( and seems genuine. Once users were putting their credentials, they were prompted that their user account was unable to load with a button below which asked them to confirm there "informations" in order to access their account.
On the next page, the users were asked to fill a form which included details like, victim's name, date of birth, address and phone number. After submitting, users were prompted to enter their full card number and the CVV number. If the victims selected ‘Verified by Visa or MasterCard SecureCode’ checkbox, they were prompted to enter their 3-D Secure password, allowing the attacker to make online purchase where there are additional security layers.

After submitting all the details, the victim was redirected to the official Paypal website. At the time of publishing, the website was unavailable, with a message “website under maintenance” desiplayed. If you have fallen victim of this phishing attack, we advise you to change your password as soon as possible and to contact your card provider.

We are anonymous.
The aftermath of Friday, November 13, 2015.
France is shocked by the events caused by terrorism in the capital.

To defend our values and our freedom, we're tracking down members of the terrorist group responsible these attacks, we will not give up, we will not forgive, and we'll do all that is necessary to end their actions.
During the attacks of Charlie Hebdo, we had already expressed our determination to neutralize anyone who would attack our freedom.
We'll be doing the same now, because of the recents attacks.
We therefore ask you to gather and to defend these ideals.
Expect a total mobilization on our part.
This violence should not weaken us. It has to give us the strength to come together and fight tirrany and obscurantism together.

We are anonymous.
We are legion.
We do not forgive.
We do not forget.

Nous sommes anonymous
Au lendemain du Vendredi 13 Novembre 2015, la France se reveille choquée par les événements terroristes ayant frappé sa capitale. Nous tenons tout d'abord à exprimer notre peine et notre solidarité avec les victimes, les blessés, et leurs familles.
Afin de défendre nos valeurs et notre liberté, nous traquerons les membres des groupes terroristes responsable de ces attaques, nous n'abandonnerons pas, nous ne pardonnerons pas et ferons tous ce qui est nécessaire pour mettre fin à leurs agissements. Lors des attentats de Charlie Hebdo, nous avions déja exprimé notre volonté de neutraliser quiconque voudrait s'attaquer à nos libertés fondamentales. Nous réitérons ici cette volonté à la suite de cette tragédie.
Nous faisons donc appel à vous, rassemblez-vous, mobilisez-vous et défendez ces idéaux. Attendez-vous à une mobilisation totale de notre part. Cette violence ne doit pas nous affaiblir, elle doit au contraire nous donner la force de nous rassembler et de nous battre pour lutter ensemble, contre la tyrannie et l'obscurantisme.
