Phishing Alert: Fake Emails Mimic LogMeIn Activation Emails

In light of recent news around the Yahoo breach, we are getting reports from both the general public and LogMeIn customers about suspicious emails that are designed to look like they are coming from LogMeIn — they have all the hallmarks of phishing attempts.

All of the reports are meant to look like a LogMeIn activation email. The email subject line is: Activate your account” or “Verify your new LogMeIn ID.”

We want to make it clear that these did NOT come from LogMeIn and people should NOT click on the links in these emails.   While we are working with our partners to remove these malicious websites, as part of our commitment to security, we want to make sure our users and the public are aware of this specific email, and we wanted to share what we’ve learned, as well as provide an easy way for people to identify the tell-tale signs of phishing attacks.
