    Heads up for Gmail users.

    Here's a bit of a heads up for all you Gmail users.

    Scammers have caught on to the allure of Gmail and are using the Google e-mail service for a "phishing" scam to harvest e-mail addresses and passwords.
    Be careful of all those 'invites' you are getting or being offered.

    I have seen several of these cookie stealing suckers going around.

    This is a very good point to be aware of.

    I'll bet most if not all of the folks clicked on the invites over the last few weeks without
    any regard to the content of the links in a race to be 1st to claim an addy.

    CSS attacks are the real deal..Be careful of what you click on.

    yeah well I won't be too concerned at this point.. I mean sure, if someone has used an invite that was publicly posted somewhere. then maybe.. but hell, I've got a few gmail accounts now and have had them for a month or so.. I haven't gotten ANY spam yet.. and even if I do, so what ?
