Internet Culprits Are Around

I get a message with a link "" (You are NOT advisable to click and LOGIN) and a few smileys from a friend in Yahoo! Messenger list. If you have come across this kind of phishing site, probably you would just ignore it and notice that the person who sends this to you has fallen into the trap of those bloody internet culprits.

Those hackers purposely create a mock-up of official Yahoo! login page in order to trick and steal your account information. Unfortunately, if you unknowingly login using your valid username and password, they manage to gain access to your authentication information and start their criminal activities. They can easily retrieve your confidential details or spam your friends in your address book using your email or instant messaging account.

In case you are unaware and tricked by them, just change your password immediately and hope this helps.
