Sendspace spam may be a blackhole

This morning's crop of junk mail (properly sorted by SmarterMail into my junk email folder!) includes the email I copied below.

According to clicking on any of the links included in the original email (but redacted here for your safety) would bring you to a malicious website. "The site hosts the BlackHole Exploit v2.0.  If victim's system has vulnerable software, the page will exploit the vulnerability and drops the virus."

So, remember!  Never, ever click on a link that you're not sure about - not even once!  If you think an email might be legitimate, go to the page in question yourself the way you usually do, not by clicking the link in the suspicious email.

If you have any questions about email that you received you can call us at 203.987.4566 or forward a copy to me and let me know how I can help.
