Got another of those silly PayPal emails to 'fill in my details' - I thought here we go again - the second this week. Right clicked checked the <a href> and cut off the ending to see whoose server was being abused / hijacked so I could email the webmaster.
Now the amazing bit - the index directory option had not been disabled in Apache - so I could see the various files - including the text file generated by the fraud form. Opened it and there were the details of many cardholders - maiden names and PIN nos included.
Glad to see a good many had used the surname scumbag, but there did seem a legitimate number with full details. I have passed the site details to abuse at PayPal.

It is still live - and many more names have been added - the number of people claiming to be George Bush has increased but I would say 1 in 6 look legit. Estimate 275 so far. Site also has IP and Browser details on separate text file, the number there is in the 1,000s.
When I first monitored the directory listing the text file size was 75k it is now 219k. I reckon the site has only gone up in the last 6 hours or so.
