Keylogger Danger: beware of the email that promises to stop phishing
Pay close attention to the email with the subject "Stop phishing victims." It is a dangerous attempt to scam that began to circulate at this time. We are facing an abnormal variant of phishing that instead of taking the classic clone site of the credit institution in turn, prompts the user to download an unspecified HTTPS certificate able to stop phishing.
This is actually a keylogger can record everything that is typed on the keyboard of your PC, so there are at risk passwords, e-mail addresses, credit card numbers, personal and confidential information, all information that could be used for the purposes darkest once in the hands of fraudsters. I like to try to "authenticate" their email, peddling the same as sent by Security.it, headed by a monitoring private, absolutely foreign to each other.
The only positive note is the text of the message the result of an Italian "translated," that is derived from machine translation software, which make the text difficult to read and understand, and therefore, it should hopefully be a first alarm bell about the true nature the message.
This email is used:

Why crime on the Internet, offer a certificate that will block any attempt at phishing. All you have to do is download the https certificate and install it by double clicking on it. Internet Service Providers thank you for your understanding and we hope to stop phishing victims.
