    N7ESU's qrz page is giving me a trojan alert because of "ruqrz.com"

    What security software are you running?

    Yep. And it came with a handy keystroke logger. That might be how the password was compromised.

    Someone can send you an e-mail stating something like, "Your QRZ account has been hacked! Click here (qrz.com) to change your password." If you hover over the "qrz.com", you'll see it really sends you to cnn.com. Hackers just send you to somewhere that can LOOK like qrz, but isn't. And if you give them your qrz credentials, well, you've been hacked.

    You REALLY have to be careful. ANY urgent call to action is verrrry suspect.

    QRZ will NEVER email ANYONE to ask them to confirm their account, enter their username/password, or anything of the sort.

    Thanks for pointing this out.

    NEVER EVER click on links like that - no matter how believable they might appear to be

    Do people still fall for that? That has been around a long time.

    All the time. I am not surprised that QRZ gets targeted due to the average age of your typical ham, and the lack of Internet street smarts that seems to come with age. I consulted for many a company that was a victim of phishing and/or spear phishing attacks. All it takes is one...
