email phising

Email users, particularly Yahoo!Mail users; you should be careful in filling out forms asking your password. Email hackers are still on the move trying almost all the possible way to steal passwords. Here’s another attempt that I just received today. The email says:

Dear Yahoo User,

Your two incoming mails were placed on pending status due a recent upgrade to our database, In order to recieve the messages Click here to login and wait for response from Yahoo, we apologise for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.

Regards,

Yahoo

Once you click the link, it will redirect you to another site with the following messages:

Sign in to Yahoo!

This is an Official alert to inform Yahoo! account users.

We regret to announce to you that with the rate at which we have newly registered members everyday, our data base is getting congested and We want to update our data base and all accounts, now we have decided to under go deactivation of all unverified account and some other of our account we find error on for both premium and free accounts.

We advise you to verify your account to avoid deactivation of your account.

Yahoo Email Hacker on Google Docs

Technically, it’s not an official form from Yahoo and anyone can create such page. If you will inspect the site’s URL, it’s a Google Doc. (Why the hell in this world Yahoo uses Google) lols.  Google Docs is a free, Web-based office suite and data storage service offered by Google. It allows users to create and edit documents online while collaborating in real-time with other users.

So don’t be deceived! Careful guys!
