Today was my first time encountering MasterCard®SecureCode when making an online order. I honestly thought I was being phished. Here’s where I got redirected to.
Going to https://www.securesuite.net/ gives you a nice blank page. And here’s the whois information:

Who’s cyota? Who’s yaron shohat? And what fucking moron at RSA thought this was a good idea? Here’s the Google results for securesuite.net phishing. Doing a search for Securesuite.net does not return Visa or Mastercard’s official sites…
Well, it turns out securesuite.net isn’t a phishing scam, after doing some Internet searching, digging up direct links from Mastercard.com, and calling MasterCard directly to get verbal confirmation and to give them a piece of my mind. It’s not a scam, it’s just moronic and a phishing scam waiting to happen.
