ViddyHo Mounts Phishing Scam

A site called ViddyHo is running a phishing scam on Google (s goog) chat users. The scam propagates via an IM from a contact telling the recipient to “check out this video.” When recipients click through, they’re asked to share their Gmail credentials. Then the site IMs the same message to the recipients’ contact list.

Warnings of the scam are all over Twitter, with many stemming from video personality Veronica Belmont, who warned followers after getting many such messages from her contact list. Our own Liz Miller was taken in after receiving a chat from a trusted tech-savvy source, so be careful.
