Seasonal Scams On The Way

Ah, the Holidays; a time for family, friends - and online scams. US-CERT - the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team - has issued a timely warning for all of us to be alert:

In the past, US-CERT has received reports of an increased number of phishing scams and malware campaigns that take advantage of the winter holidays and holiday shopping season. Users who are new to making seasonal online purchases are encouraged to take care and use safe online shopping habits. US-CERT reminds users to remain cautious when receiving unsolicited email messages that could be part of a potential phishing scam or malware campaign.
