Phish Alert

Watch out for a particularly nefarious new phish that started hitting e-mail boxes in the last little while.

The email purports to be a communication from Conor Cahill.

It asks users to click a link that appears as "".

Unfortunately for the unsuspecting recipient, the link does indeed take them to Conor's blog site - at which they are presented with various posts about gadgets, United Airlines Business Class, and life in rural Virginia.

A clear case of identity theft. Our attention is a valuable thing, and Conor is clearly stealing it away from more useful applications.

Tell anybody you care about not to click on such links.
