We have isolated an email message which seems to be spoofing an email from easyDNS to a member, which reads as follows:
Subject: DETECTED Online User Violation
Date: Sun, 16 Apr 2006 00:22:50 +0200
Dear user peter,
It has come to our attention that your Easydns User Profile ( x ) records are out of date. For further details see the attached document.
Thank you for using Easydns!
The Easydns Support Team
+++ Attachment: No Virus (Clean)
+++ Easydns Antivirus - www.easydns.com
with an attachment called account-report.zip.
This email is not from us and the attachment is likely a virus or a trojan.
A few important points come to mind:
- We will never send out an email attachment for the user to open
- We will not instruct you to “follow this link” to update your account profile
- easyDNS publishes SPF data for the easydns.com domain
