Well, here’s another one.
I just received an email from a domain registered in Russia, claiming to be an Adobe application update. Don’t be fooled by this one. Just take a look at the “whois” info for the domain name:
Domain name: ADOBE-MAILER.COM
Registrant ID: TAACTMK-RU
Registrant Name: Kenny James
Registrant Organization: Kenny James
Registrant Street1: 102 Avenue Street
Registrant City: New York
Registrant State: NY
Registrant Postal Code: 10023
Registrant Country: US
You think Kenny James is the real adobe? Look at the fake address and name…. This domain was registered in Russia….
Here is the text of the email, so that you can be aware of what it looks like and know not to click through any of the links. If you receive this email, report it as spam immediately and DO NOT CLICK THE LINKS!
Believe me, “Kenny James”, from Russia, is not associated with Acrobat and is not offering real free upgrades. Avoid this malicous email if you receive it.
