Several of our 1,323,472 email addresses (setup just to perform spam+scam email mining) received an email from a scammer to download the latest Microsoft Internet Explorer 7.0. The link goes to a site something like We still have the email but the link has been destroyed. It is basically a phishing scam asking you to download a patch for your IE, that could be used in turn to hack into your PC. Beware of such a scam. As always, check the URL or simply type the exact URL which you know (e.g.,,, etc…). Be safe then sorry, don’t go for shortcuts.
