Blogger users beware: phishing attack

According to security firm Trend Micro, bad guys are sending emails to Blogger users, pretending to be from Blogger.

The email asks users to "update" their accounts by clicking a link - which seems to lead to a Blogger login page starting with the same domain name as the real Blogger site, but in fact is a fake page where, if you enter your Blogger login details, they'll steal them.

So beware.

Granted, people might not be surprised that British politicians were taken in by Twitter phishing scams last week, but when even someone as tech-savvy as Cory Doctorow has had his account hacked (according to a Yahoo! story), it shows you just can't be too careful.
