Today is our most happiest day for our blog as one of the bset Cyber Security Expert of the World Mr. Gunnar has made his comment on one of our posting on blog and that is on the topic "Pay Pal member beware from phishers and and cyber criminals". This is the most valuable comment of our blog so far and so we have decided to post it on the front page for your kind notice and future guideline. And here it is for you:-
I am a friend of Sitanshu Ray who forwarded me that link of your interesting blog.
Phishing mails like this will never stop in a principal way and of cause they can be danger like in this case.
This Phishing mail you posted looks like an "invitation" of a (so called) drive-by-infection. This means, if you open the link from this mail, your computer might get infected by a virus/trojan in a second without interaction. They might use unfixed or new vulnerabiliys in the browser and/or plugins to do that and its very possible that your antivirus didnt "know" that used virus/trojan. In worst case, your computer is after this a part of a botnet or they "only" steal data out of your computer like passwords, banking data etc.
If you check the main URL of this like, you will see that the owner of the domain is "inContact Inc." - a call center. Call Center often act like this and offer there service to "normal" companys i.e. to send out spam etc.
On the inContact Website you can also see the address of them: 7730 South Union Park Avenue, Suite 500 Salt Lake City, UT 84047 or check the nic.com with the whois data.
But the problem is: It's hard to attest them, that they send the phishing mail by themself. They can easily say someone (unknown) did it. But there are also some possibility to make traps for them that could it be possible to sue them ... ;-)
