Sophos Warns of UPS Phishing E-mails
A link asking users to update their accounts leads to a compromised Web site in the Seychelles.
Sophos researchers are warning of a spam campaign that asks recipients to click on a link in order to update their UPS accounts.
"The link ... leads to a compromised website in the Seychelles," writes Sophos' Chester Wisniewski. "It appears the attackers have exploited a vulnerability in the Joomla CMS installed on the host."
"It is unlikely the phishers are really trying to access your UPS account, but rather are counting on the fact that most users reuse their usernames and passwords for multiple sites," Wisniewski writes.
