E-Mail spoofing

  .HTML 12:12 07 Jun 2004

Beware fellow Pc advisor friends, hackers have begun to use telnet to spoof(fake) emails from whatever adress they want to be sent whatever adress they want. So if you recieve an email from someone a bit dodgey, ignore it. A comman example is:
From:[email protected]
Subject:your account
Message: Dear customer, your account will be terminated if you do not send us your adress and password again, this is due to a problem with the server. sorry for any inconvienience caused.

So beware, you have been warned
