Fake WoW Cataclysm Beta

Just a heads up to those that don’t have security implemented on their computers or web browsers (although, anti-phishing should be already set in the latest browsers anyway), there is a fake email going around that is yet another pathetic attempt to phish details.

This time it targets World of Warcraft: Cataclysm and tries to tell you that you’ve been accepted into the beta, then provides a link for you to log into your profile, except, it obviously isn’t to the official website due to;

  • Not going to an email address that you registered with (in some cases)
  • Going straight into a spam folder
  • The link being obviously fake or if you have WoT (Web of Trust) installed, a red circle appears next to it
  • The follwing image appears when you click on the link (in Firefox);

So, just remember to be careful with your details folks, you could lose a lot by entering information into fake websites!
