Windows 7: Phishing scam targets users of Adobe PDF Reader.

29 Jan 2010   #1

Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit. SP1.
Phishing scam targets users of Adobe PDF Reader.

A new phishing scam is trying to fool people into thinking it comes from Adobe, announcing a new version of PDF Reader/Writer. The message is making its way into e-mail boxes today, and the real Adobe urged any recipients to simply delete it.

The phishing scam has a subject line "download and upgrade Adobe PDF Reader – Writer for Windows," includes a fake version of Adobe's logo and provides links that would lead to malicious code or other trouble if a victim clicked on them. The e-mail appears to come from Adobe, which is part of the scam.
