We wanted to bring to your attention a phishing email that some of our customers have received in the past few hours. The email appears to have come from firstname.lastname@example.org, with the subject line: “networksolutions.com. <Domain Name>: confirmation data changes”. If you have received this email, please DO NOT click on any of the links or install the attached file on your computer. The email is a phishing attempt to obtain your login credentials.
A condensed text of the message is below:
Your personal account information has been changed.
For security purposes we have recorded that this request was made at
Thu Oct 22 14:01:11 2012 with the IP address 22.214.171.124 using
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:12.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/12.0.
This email was NOT sent to you by Network Solutions. Someone has spoofed our email address and is sending this unauthorized email. Unfortunately, phishing scams are becoming more and more prevalent on the Internet. If you have questions, advice, or ideas, please leave a comment here on our blog. The Anti-Phishing Working Group (APWG) also has a post “Consumer Advice: How to Avoid Phishing Scams“ providing more information.
