CDC (Centre for disease control and prevention) has recieved reports about fraudulent emails being circulated referring CDC sponsored State Vaccination Program for H1N1 (swine flu). The official site of CDC(cdc.gov) states these are phishing mails and clearly staes that the CDC has not implemented a state vaccination program which requires registration. It further adds that users who click on the link would be at the risk of some malicious code being installed in their system.
 
CDC suggests users to take the following steps to reduce the risk of being a victim of such phishing attacks:
* Do not follow unsolicited links and do not open or respond to unsolicited email messages.
* Use caution when visiting un-trusted websites.
* Use caution when entering personal information online.


An example of the Phishing mail is as below:
