    Spam mail received:
    "CanadaRAM, you are a moron"

    and in the message:

    "Want proof? Click here" with a link to a 'video'

    Of course, the 'video' is a Windows trojan horse.

    Something a bit amusing about the social engineering here - and the fact that the title is 100% accurate for anyone who clicks the link.

    I got one of those too in my telus account. :D

    Wonder how many people do click on them.


    I also got a similar one from a web-security firm, trying to show me how vulnerable computers are on the internet.
    :rolleyes:
