Default Email Phishing scam

2+2,

Please be advised that a phishing scam is being perpetrated against targeted very high stakes players. The affected players received an email supposedly from Full Tilt Poker Security that contains an executable download link that installs a key-logger onto their computer.

Should you receive an email that instructs you to download a “Full Tilt Security Update” DO NOT click the link to download and install. Full Tilt Poker will never require you to click on a link for a software update – all updates are done server-side and download as needed when you log into the client software. You can always go to fulltiltpoker.com to download and install the latest version of our software.

If you received this email and did click the link and installed the executable, then you should consider your computer infected with a key-logger and take appropriate actions to cleanse your system. You may need to re-format and re-install your OS to preserve the integrity of your passwords and other private information.

Sean

I started the download before realizing that was idiotic and cancelled. It obviously took FTp a day and a half to answer my 4 emails asking if that was a legit upgrade in the email or not, and in the meanwhile I transferred all my online money to various friends.

Very curious as to how the scammers got everybody's email addresses: really scary if somebody working for Full Tilt leaked this info

all,

Allow this to serve as a reminder you should not play on unsecured networks, without up to date virus scanners & spyware checks, etc.
