It’s a Wild Internet with many thorns – be careful not to get stuck.

Security vendor F-secure last week alerted us to two different identity theft & malware scams going around that is likely to have the potential to be very damaging.

The first of these is a Comcast High Speed spam email that is offering users with a special self installation kit and asking them to sign in with their account information.

See the link here for the full article and screen capture of the bogus email..

This is specifically targeting comcast users and since Comcast covers most of the areas we service, our clients an clients’ employees need to be aware of this. Think clearly before clicking a link in your email and providing personal information online.

The second item F-secure mentions is alerting us all to many YouTube “advertisement” videos describing a wide range of iTunes, computer, gaming and entertainment devices that would require you to download a file and “may need to turn off your anti-virus” software to get the file to run properly. This is a very polite way of telling you – “Turn it off and I’ll infect your system.”
