Malware ALERT – Fake AT&T Bill


<>
**Share & Like To Spread This Alert**

Cyber-criminals are sending out emails containing bogus AT&T bills in the hopes you will think you forgot to pay your bill and rush into clicking a link which sends you NOT to AT&T, but to a website hosting a Blackhole exploit kit. This is a very high-quality scam, however it has 2 really noticeable red flags. One, the bil

l amount is ridiculously high and two, if you float your mouse over the main link in the mail, the target website is not AT&T.

If you receive this type of email do not click any of the links in it. Instead report the email as phishing and delete it immediately. As a general rule of thumb it is better to login to web accounts directly if you believe there is a problem with the account. Do not follow links in or reply to “Out-Of-Blue” emails.
