    Latest Spam Alert


    Hi5.com Spam

    Sophos posted a blog entry about a fake hi5.com friend request.
    The invite tells the user to enter their credentials on a fake replica of the login portal at hi5.com.
    The article includes a screen shot of the email. The email message includes a picture, a paragraph, and a link. Sophos notes that the name of the supposed sender varies. The author of the article, J. Legare, also notes that the bottom links of the fake site are broken.
    Legare suggests that users who were fooled by this spam should change their password at hi5.com as soon as they can.
