Bogus Amazon Malicious eMail campaign resurfaces

Just a quick note, this is NNNH (no new news here) –  the malicious Amazon  “order shipped” campaign has been around for quite a while, but it’s surfacing again in volume this week, and with “beach reading” orders for vacation probably peaking about now this seemed a good thing to pass along.

Also, since I now have a blog that’s probably the only security related thing my Mom every reads, I’m re-posting the heads-up here in case it keeps someone I care about from getting suckered.   Mom, if you get email from amazon about an order you don’t remember making, don’t click on anything.  🙂

That’s all.  Have a good weekend everybody.
