|Phishing e-mail scams!|
If you have received the e-mail below, please remember that it is very common for these e-mail scams to be redistributed at a later date with only slightly different content, such as a different subject or return address, or with the fake webpage(s) hosted on a different webserver.
Please forward to us any e-mail messages you believe may be scam/phishing e-mails to FRISK Software at firstname.lastname@example.org. Even if it appears that a scam you receive has already been reported, please submit it to us anyway. Be sure to include "phishing e-mail" in the subject.
A copy of the phony e-mail message goes like this:
Dear Valued Member,
According to our terms of services, you will have to confirm your e-mail by the following link, or your account will be suspended within 24 hours for security reasons.
After following the instructions in the sheet, your account will not be interrupted and will continue as normal.
Thanks for your attention to this request. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Sincerely, F-prot Abuse Department
The e-mail message seems to be normal except the link in reality points to a spoofed URL. Uploading this link will drop a backdoor on your computer which is detected by F-PROT Antivirus. If you have response to this e-mail message, please fully scan your computer immediately.
