The "reset your password" frenzy used to advertise online pharmacy websites

After last week’s panic in regards to password leakage and requests to change passwords, we started to see already attempts to misuse this recommendation.

There are emails pretending to come from IMDB with subjects like:

– Your password is too short

– Your password is too weak

basically asking the user to login and change their password.

Currently, the links in these emails are redirecting to online pharmacy websites, but this might change quite fast to phishing websites or to infected websites that try to drop some malware.

Don’t click on these links and delete the emails.
