Microsoft Outlook users targeted in phishing attempt

New scam tries to pry account and e-mail server information out of Microsoft Outlook users.

Trend Micro is warning about a phishing attempt that targets users of Microsoft Outlook.

The phishing e-mail arrives in Outlook e-mail in-boxes and looks like it comes from Microsoft. It prompts recipients to reconfigure their Outlook by clicking on a link that leads to a Web site that asks for an account name and password, as well as mail server information, according to the TrendLabs Malware Blog.

By getting the mail server information, the phishers would get total access to the Outlook user's account and be able to read e-mails and use it to spam others, TrendLabs said.
