New (to me) phishing scheme
Got a typical phishing email today with a slightly new (to me) twist, and thought I'd share.
The site it linked to was an IP, and on visiting the raw IP, I got a Plesk default page. Add the "confirm.php" and it tried to load a Windows COM object, which I assume was a trojan or virus loader.

I hadn't seen this ISP twist on this old issue, so I thought I'd pass it on here.
