New phishing scam

A new tactic is afoot.  This one is even more cleaver than other ones i've seen.  They go around the phishing philters and compromised websites by delivering the html directly to you via a hashed url.  PLEASE, take caution when opening links from email, even if they appear from someone you know.  Verify with the person before you actually do give up personal information..

I got an email today:

So this email is coming from someone i know, they are using that person's name in the message.  The red flags in this message is.. the lack of consistency in the fonts, the urgency of clicking on the link, (it's very important) and the fact that no other information is included such as what the document is that he wants me to read.

Scammers new tricks.

This email came through today.  They are banking on the chance that the person getting the email will think that someone they know has passed and want to find out more by clicking on the link.  The link actually takes users back to a different site that has been compromised to include the malicious link.  Take caution when an email wants you to click on a link.

Phishing Email

i got this email afternoon. It was one of the best scrapes i’ve seen.  Looks exactly like a real email from that might come from Apple.  The giveaway was the email address it was sent to is a junk address, not my iTunes email.. but i'll bite and see where it leads.

itunesemailThe site it was directed to was even better than the email.  Safari didn't even blink when the fake site appeared.

Patti sent this to me in June of 03

Some years ago on a hot summer day in south Florida a little boy decided to go for a swim in the old swimming hole behind his house. In a hurry to dive into the cool water, he ran out the back door, leaving behind shoes, socks,and shirt as he went.He flew into the water, not realizing that as he swam toward the middle of the lake, an alligator was swimming toward the shore. His mother in the house was looking out the window saw the two as they got closer and closer together. In utter fear, she ran toward the water, yelling to her son as loudly as she could. Hearing her voice, the little boy became alarmed and made a U-turn to swim to his mother. It was too late. Just as he reached her, the alligator reached him. From the dock, the mother grabbed her little boy by the arms just as the alligator snatched his legs. Read More »
