    Website Safety - Fake Microsoft-like sites

      :eek: Yesterday, Sunbelt issued a warning for several sites that are spelled closely like the true Microsoft related sites. Most of the URLs are plural (e.g., microsofts or microsoftes[COLOR=red])[/COLOR]. [COLOR=red] Please do not attempt to go to these sites, as malware could be automatically and silently installed on vulnerable PCs. [/COLOR]

      These URLs could be used in future phishing or targeted attacks, as they closely ressemble the true Microsoft naming conventions. Always be careful of URLs and performing any actions as a result of email or visiting a website.
