Since Monday there has been a bit of a deluge of Linkedin scam mails that redirect the end-user to Zeus data theft malware. It’s worth pointing out that these emails are still doing the rounds:
In addition to drive by exploits attempting to install Zeus without permission, some of the sites are using the old “Upgrade your Flash player to continue” trick which will no doubt snare a few more victims. If you absolutely cannot live without using Linkedin via emails, it might be worth forcing yourself to switch to using site based communication only for the time being. Failing that, at least grab Noscript and make your browsing a lot safer.
