Trustwave Trustkeeper Phish

Just got another interesting phishing e-mail. This time around it is security company Trustwave that is being phished. I am not a customer, so I am not sure how well these e-mails reflect the real thing, but they confused me for a while. The give away that this is a fake is the from e-mail address as well as the link leading to a different site then advertised.

Our Barracuda appliance shows a LOT of incoming "scan warning" spam starting at about 2/21 1100 EST.

Thankfully all either blocked or quarantined.
