15 Phishing Scams to Watch Out For
Google ViddyHo worm
As of last week, Google's GoogleChat has hosted the ViddyHo worm phishing scam. Some users of the online chat service have been receiving messages from someone appearing to be one of their contacts, prompting them to "check out this link." Victims are then directed to the ViddyHo Web site where they are asked for their Google login information. With the divulged account info, the worm then spreads to everyone on the victim's contact list. How to keep yourself safe? Don't randomly check out links that folks you know send you unless you've had a brief conversation with them first (you know, to find out if they're who they say they are).
