This is a phishing email:
Due to our recent Security Upgrade we require you to sign in your domain name, username and password and update your Control Panel to avoid unauthorized access to your online Cpanel and FTP account Log In and verify your domain for this security check. Failure to confirm your domain within 2 business days may lead to suspension of your domain if we observe any unauthorized sign in and may lead to total remove of the domain name from our system.
Looks pretty scary, doesn’t it? Well, except for the spelling issues and the random capitalizations. But hey, if spammers hadn’t been shite at school they wouldn’t be spamming for a living, ya?
You’d have to actually view the source of the email to see it’s sent from some crappy ISP in Italy:
Received: from User (188.8.131.52) by smtp201.alice.it (8.6.060.15) (authenticated as email@example.com)
And you’d have to pay attention to the URL it sends you to, which is an exploit uploaded under some noob’s unsecured WordPress installation:
Here’s a couple of hints:
- Legitimate folk will never ask for your login. (Unless it’s an actual helpdesk and tech support is convinced you’re doing something stupid and need to check it from their end.)
- You shouldn’t click links in emails, unless they’re from people you know. And even then, if it isn’t a funny cat picture/video, just don’t.
Fucking spammers should all be hung up by their taints. Don’t be a statistic!
