    New virus/PW fishing out there?

    OK guys I just wanted to give you a heads up about what popped into my in box this week.

    I keep getting E-mails that look to be real from YouTube telling me "My video has been approved". Since I don't post anything there I knew not to open the links in the E-mail.

    Just to be sure someone else wasn't posting things to YouTube on my account I went over there WITHOUT using the link in the E-mail and checked my account. Sure enough nothing was going on.

    I'm pretty sure these YouTube E-mails are a virus/fishing attempt so don't click on them. The do look like the real thing though so be careful.


    Cheers,

    Timmy

    Yah, I got one this morning too. 'Dunno if it's a virus, I just marked it as 'spam' without opening it, and partied on.

    You can find a wealth of info from the sender by expanding the e-mails headers, if you know/learn what to look for like...

    An IP reverse look up or a Verified Domain Key beside the FROM: Header =http://WWW.YOUTUBE.COM

    (Google "e-mail headers" for more info)

    I'm pretty certain they don't. I'm a 30-year systems engineer, and use a different mail alias for every forum/website I register on. I can tell if one of them exposes me to spam pretty readily. In which case that alias becomes a pipe to /dev/null.

    I try to use alias names whenever I order something. My dogs each have magazine subscriptions, the spam/junk mail lets me know who sold the identity. I then stop doing business with that company
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    That too. /etc/aliases on my mail server currently has 469 entries of which about 400 are site-specific.

    Except I don't have any dogs, with or without magazine subscriptions.

    As a general rule I forward suspicious emails to the fraud address of the supposed sender.

    How do you create & use an alias? Sounds interesting.
