email spoofing

Email spoofing is a fraudulent email activity in which an email header is forged in order to make the message appear as originated from a source different from the actual one. It often affects the security of your site, and aims at getting sensitive information from the addresser, such as passwords. If you receive an email from a person you don't know, don't open it: it's probably a virus! In this case we suggest you to use a regularly updated antivirus software and don't trust any attachment containing vague and strange messages.
