Today I received an email purportedly from Adobe, the company that makes Acrobat and a bunch of other cool software, inviting me to “upgrade your application”. DON’T DO IT!
The sending email address is adobesystems - which is not adobe.com - although they may own that name. This was my first clue….
There are at least a dozen things about this email that are red flags and I’ll spell out more of them later. In the interest of posting this article as quickly as possible, I’m just going to stop here and tell you this: The email is not from Adobe and you should delete it.
Here is a link to google results for a search on adobesystems - http://goo.gl/vigTM
Practice safe hex! That’s geek humor - that has been around for years.
