From IT Week: 

Phishing attacks are growing more sophisticated and will represent a major security threat in the future as the number of converged spyware, spam and virus attacks grows, according to the chief technology officer of a major email and web security firm.

Mark Sunner of MessageLabs told IT Week that researchers at his firm have recently seen phishing attacks that employ information collected from users’ PCs by spyware. The criminals aim to make their scam messages more targeted and effective by using the inside information gained in this way.
