Beware - New Hotmail Account Scam Alert

Every day I hear people complaining that their hotmail account is hacked, Now as I have told couple of times before in my previous posts related to email hacking that there are only two foolproof methods i.e. Phishing and keylogging which are mostly used to hack email accounts.
Today I received an email in my hotmail inbox the email looked as it was from "Windows Live Team" and the subject of the email was "Hotmail Account Alert"



Here is the screen shot of how the email looked like:


"Dear Account Owner


Due to the congestion in all Windows Live Account we are removing all unused Account, Windows Live would be shutting down all unused and unconfirmed Account, You are hereby ask to confirm your Account by filling out your Login Information below after clicking the reply button. Your Accounts will be suspended within 48 hours for security reasons if you refuse to reply this message.


* Username:
* Password:
* Date of Birth:
* Country Or Territory:


After following the instructions in the sheet, your account will not be interrupted and will continue as normal. Thanks for your attention to this request. We apologize for any inconvenience.


Sincerely,
The Windows Live Team"
If any one of you have received these kinds of emails, The email is 100% Fake and it is not from a Windows Live team and is a attempt to hack your hotmail or any other password, Hotmail and windows live team employees will never ask for Password,

It's quite impressive to see that Hackers now a days instead of using complicated methods such as Phishing and Keylogging are using social engineering to get the work done, because now a days lots of modern browsers have Phishing filter by default so these types of attacks get detected easily and hackers do not want to waste their time in making the servers Fully Un detectable(FUD), instead they are using a simple social engineering attack which does require any softwares and other resources.

Have you ever received these kinds of email scams?

  2. Hello Rafay
    i of course like this post like i read all of yours, they are teaching us a lot to protect ourselves these days, thanks for your effort. As for the fake message i never got any like shown above but it is very common in gmail, my way to protect is not to react on any message, its simple they just need your log-in datas and then its over, thanks again for this post to be aware
