Everybody realize tat people are stressed before long holidays and this fact is also known by people who try to get richer by fooling innocent ordinary users.
A friend of mine called me and asked me about an email she got today from “hotmail”. I found this email was a new “phishing” attack. The email was sent by
_HoTmail.Sign.Error@hoterr-srv188.8.131.52.32.uk._ and requesting the hotmil user to correct some necessary personal data by clicking a link (picture 1).
If you received such an email ten you should just delete it without doing anything.

but the real URL leading to the following web page
and the user gets something pretty much like the Microsoft live web page (Picture 2):
Since the user is requested to logon and correct the information the sign in procedure goes directly to
Now the user’s userid and password for Hotmail are compromised
