Watch out for South Korea Spam emails

A new breed of 'steal your login' emails is making its way around the circuit.

These are coming from a south korean domain/hosting company out there.

I tracked one today that was trying to get me to download a Microsoft Outlook.exe file to run on my computer to give them access to it.

Sorry boys, I use a Macintosh and Apple Mail!! 

So beware of anything coming from your domain name that the email reads as follows:

Subject: For the owner of the insert your email address here
To: your actual name

Dear user of the yourdomainname.com mailing service!

We are informing you that because of the security upgrade of the mailing service your mailbox (yourname at yourdomain.com) settings were changed. In order to apply the new set of settings click on the following link:

(that next link is to a file that will land on your pc and infect it nastily)

and then there's a fake letter ID# after this.

Don't click any links, simply delete the message and save yourself a world of trouble.

Best,
