Because the attack is based on phishing, it can be prevented by securing email server first. The best way to do this is by adding SPF and DomainKeys to your mails. SPF defines a list of servers that are allowed to send emails for a domain, so if the attacker’s email is sent from another server with fake email address as sender, it will be refused by destination server (or at least marked as SPF failed). DomainKey is digital signature made by mail server and verified by recepient using public key from DNS.

URL obfuscation is not the best sollution because is hard to remember by admin. Creating a different user with lower rights than admin might be a way to improve security.
