Subject:notify about using the e-mail account.
Dear user of Rdrop.com,
We warn you about some attacks on your e-mail account. Your computer may
contain viruses, in order to keep your computer and e-mail account safe,
please, follow the instructions.
Further details can be obtained from attached file.
For security reasons attached file is password protected. The password is "53501".
The Rdrop.com team http://www.rdrop.com
There was an attachment. A file, textdocument.zip, of a 12.1 Kb size. Naturally I didn't open it; I run on a Macintosh anyway, so the likely-Wintel payload wouldn't have done a thing. But it may be some sort of nasty un*x script or something, so why tempt fate?
Isn't it a howl? I mean, how dumass can you be to say that a file is password protected for security, then send the password in the clear?
There are all sorts of script kiddies, crackers, phishers, what have you. But apparently the newest are those to whom the idea of posting email involves writing with a Crayola[tm] directly on the screen.
Seems impossible, but there is someone out there giving phishers an even worse image than already they had!.
There's no "email@example.com". There's no "Rdrop.com team".
But there is a URL as http://www.rdrop.com.
At least they got that right.
