    Phishing Attack Targets Microsoft Outlook Users
    by Sarah Calaunan (Fraud Analyst)

    "Seems like since micro-blogging, social networking, and banking sites are the ones commonly targeted by phishers nowadays, one attack pulled itself away from the trend and went for a more direct approach: email accounts.

    We’ve recently found a phishing email that informs users to re-configure their Microsoft Outlook through an online procedure. Users are instructed to click on the link to setup, leading them to a phishing website."

    If it weren't sad that would be funny. Lets see. I didn't configure Outlook at a website when I installed, but based on some email, I am going to a site to do it now.
