The heads up for the day is a new trojan spreading fast across the net. The malicious code is distributed via email disquised as a warning that your account is being used to send a ton of spam. You click on the “verification” document attached to the email, and the underlying program directs your computer to a website filled with yet more nasties.
If your email account was hijacked for spammers enjoyment, your ISP would likely shut the account down before you received any warning that it was happening. Hence, your warning would be more likely to come in the form of a phone call, while you get a clue via your temporarily disabled account.
Don’t fall for it.
