Hash: RIPEMD160

A phish is typically setup using a well known web server vulnerability.
At this point, many of them are setup by more or less "bottom feeders"
as far as the overall hacking scene goes. Only few of them are a bit
more sophisticated. So you are likely looking at people who brute force
passwords (e.g. a lot of the SSH / FTP server password scans you may
see) or they use well known problems with phpbb/mambo and other software
like that. While the tools are automated and may fall into the "worm"
category, they are usually just simple scripted hacking tools.
