As you have known, Yahoo never suspend their customer's account just because they have an error while logging in (it's a common mistake to make errors, such as typo, forgot to turn off CAPS LOCK, etc). And the other mistakes made by the sender is that he/she was sending this email to (my alias for local OOo Documentation Project). I never put this email on my Yahoo email list, so this is trully a social engineering efforts, but sorry dude, it's not working for me :D

Please be carefull when you receive this kind of email message also.


  1. disclaimer : trik ini gue kasi tau liat untuk nunjukin fakta yang ada aja. bukan untuk dipake!

    yang juga lagi ngetren sekarang itu bikin login screen palsu yang sama kayak layanan-layanan beken (yahoo, frenster, myspace, etc).

    jadi triknya kita belagak mengharuskan pengunjung untuk login ke layanan itu dulu (ada juga yang langsung di redirect).

    trus pengunjung yg ngga sadar (ngga liat url) akan santai aja masukin password en usernamenya dia. dan bang! we got em!

    asik ya? heheh...makanya liat-liat dulu sebelom ngetik.

  2. yup, memang ini yang sekarang lagi jadi tren, jadi setiap orang harus tambah hati2. Soalnya sekarang ini banyak sekali usaha social engineering yang sudah dilakukan
