We received several tickets today about a new type of email spam that is very personable and hard to ignore.

The email looks like this:

Subject: For the owner of the user@yourdomain.com mailbox

Dear user of the yourdomain.com mailing service!

We are informing you that because of the security upgrade of the mailing
service your mailbox (user@yourdomain.com) settings were changed.
In order to apply the new set of settings click on the following link:

link url that links to yourdomain.com

Best regards, yourdomain.com  Technical Support.

The link in the URL seems to a 404 not found link but for now, do not click on the link.  It seems these spammers are testing a new form of spam that grabs your attention as they use yourdomain.com.  Just DELETE it.  Do not reply to email, unsubscribe, etc.

Just click this Google link to see others who have received it too
