Hi all,

In recent days we've seen few attempts to confuse Kerio Connect end-users to send email address and password for their account to an unknown sites with fake Kerio Connect login dialog. Stolen login information is then used for distributing spams.

Please remind your users to always check the server SSL certificate status and server hostname in browsers address bar. Using webmail client (or any other website where you need to log in) should be done with same care as logging to your bank.

Example: This IS NOT a genuine login dialog for Kerio Connect 7. Please notice second "Email Address" input, which is not in the original dialog. It is fake.

With respect to phishing and invalid URLs - is there some way to have a filter look at any URL that's presented as HTML - i.e., there's an href and also a text representation, and if the text representation that doesn't match the domain of the actual link then it be flagged as phishing - e.g.:
<a href="http://123.456.789.10/phishing.html"> http://webmail.example.com/login.html </a>

It's completely valid to have a link where the text is something different - e.g. a link that says Click Here! but to have a link where the text looks like it's a URL but it's pointing to a different domain to the actual URL, then I've never seen one of these used for good.

I'd really like to be able to flag every email that has a non-matching URL as spam and delete it immediately.
