Windows 7: Hotmail password phishing again.

25 Jan 2010   #1

Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit. SP1.
Hotmail password phishing again.

I am a very lucky guy.
In fact, I must be the luckiest person in the world since spammers like to send all kinds of lucky spam to me.
These days, I get inundated with lucky spam. The last spam I had, I got offered a free gift card if I purchased some Viagra from them. Wow.
On other days, asking me to lose my weight results in instant chances of winning a lottery at the same time and all of this is due to my lucky email address.
But before I can get my lucky email address, they first need to verify my hotmail account.

Not a problem, right?
