Gone Phishin'

Yesterday I received an urgent email from "EBay" directing me to verify my username and password immediately. If not, my account would be deleted. Since it was of the utmost importance, they courteously included a link to the "EBay registration page". A cursory look at the link showed it to be nothing more than an amateur attempt at phishing. It was doubly suspicious since I don't even have an EBay account...

It did however remind me of the classic P-P-P-Powerbook story.

Happy Friday!
