    WARNING: Adwords Phishing + Malware Installation
    I received a very suspicious email claiming to be from Google Adwords today. Well I don't use Adwords so a few alarms went off. I checked the Adsense forum and found this thread:

    http://groups.google.com/group/adsen...43440619899164

    If you receive a suspicious Adwords email DO NOT CLICK THE LINKS. Malware has been reported.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Weekend or not, just use the report button to report a post that requires moderation anytime. There is always someone around.

    Generally, I NEVER click the links. Always log in independently.

    I just got a somewhat urgent message from HostGator this weekend informing me that my password was changed (for security reasons) and they provided a link to get the new password. Fortunately, they left reference to their support forum, which I found the link on (yes it was the same link). The result of the password change was that all my datafeed pages were disabled, so this was a big deal for me.
