Danger, Danger ... Linked-In Phish Alert

Nearly got caught out by this one as nefarious criminal masterminds are always at work on the net

Thankfully this threat was thwarted by my Anti-Virus software but a relatively authentic looking request "to connect to" was/is a hidden trojan.

By clicking on View Profile (and I guess if you do Accept) a nasty little bit of malware (not the Ben 10 Alien type) will try and run (installing said trojan))

Just passing the message on as the Internet is a jungle out there! If in doubt go through LinkedIn proper to do your research/review ;)

Thanks for the heads up.

Cheers Geordie! I've been getting increased Linked-In requests of late and am always double-checking who they are before committing, but you never can be too sure ;)
