Flickr Users Beware

Someone is targeting users of the popular photos sharing website Flickr in an attempt to obtain passwords or get you to install malicious software.

Flickr: “Recently there have been attempts to lure Flickr members to web pages which look similar to Flickr and invite people to enter their password or download a “package” of private Flickr photos.

Flickr does not offer downloads of photo packages, self-extracting archives of photos, private or otherwise. If you see a link which offers something similar — even if it appears in a comment or posting left by a member you are familiar with — please use the “Report Abuse” link at the bottom of every Flickr page to let us know.”
