Windows Email Security Update Phishing Scam

Post  DHF on Thu Oct 18, 2012 2:46 am

Email purporting to be from Microsoft claims that the recipient's Windows installation records are out of date and that he or she must therefore update email account details by clicking a "Verify" button.

The email is not from Microsoft and the claim that the user's email account needs to be verified is untrue. The email is an attempt by online criminals to trick users into disclosing their email account login details. The criminals will subsequently use these stolen credentials to hijack the email accounts of their victims and use them for perpetrating further spam and scam campaigns.
