A new bogus email is circulating, masquerading as an invitation from Adobe to download a new version of Adobe Reader.
The malicious email message reads:
PDF Reader 2009. New version for Windows and Mac. Open, edit, and create PDF files, click here.
Warning: Do not click! Just delete the message from your inbox and / or report it as spam to your email provider. The bogus website is NOT an Adobe-owned website, but rather one that attempts to damage your PC and / or drain your bank account.
My thanks to the PC Radio Show (http://www.pcradioshow.org/) for this heads-up.
Have a look at the Anti-Phishing Working Group (APWG) website: (http://www.antiphishing.org/) Phishing is a growth industry! Their site contains valuable advice on how to avoid being scammed.
