ALTA, perfect hacking target with no protection

American Land Title Association (ALTA) is a perfect phishing hole. According to SC Magazine (see their story here), "ALTA warned its members to discard a phishing email with the subject line Changes & Updates to Member Directory…" All ALTA would have had to do to eliminate such phishing was to have implemented DMARC enforcement.

Why a perfect phishing hole? Simple. Get into land title records, and then reroute banking instructions on closing transactions as directed by the so-called legitimate title company.

As per the protect song of yore, "When will they ever learn? When will they ever learn?"
