Another Phishing Attacks Targets Live Mail Users

An email masquerading as a legit one from the Hotmail Security Team is sent to Windows Live users threatening them of account suspension should they not verify their account using the embedded link:

The unsuspecting user will then be redirected to the fake site where the phisher can see the users’ log in credentials.

How Do You Know You’re on the Legit Site

It’s all in the address bar. If the website you are browsing is encrypted with an SSL Certificate, then HTTPS must appear on the address bar.  You will also see a padlock which when clicked, shows you the identity of the owner of the website which was already verified by a trusted Certification Authority like GlobalSign.
