I just wanted to pass along this alert I just received from Hawaiian Airlines:
Hawaiian Airlines today issued a public alert to warn of a fraudulent email being circulated. The email is labeled “Your airplane ticket.” It appears as a notice of a new ticketing service and informs the recipient that a new account has been opened in their name and a ticket has been charged to their credit card.
The email contains an attachment designed to look like an electronic ticket, but instead is contaminated with a virus.
The email also contains references to login, password and credit card information, which Hawaiian would never include in an email to customers unless it’s requested.
This email is not linked to Hawaiian in any way. We just want to warn everyone that it does contain a virus and our advice is not to open the attachment and to delete the email from your inbox.
