Configuration Manager Training dotcom scares me. Does it you?

I rambled a bit a long while ago about something I came across called ConfigurationManagerTraining.com (notice I’m not even going to give the link, just the text).  At the time I found it, it was new and there was not enough content to make it valuable yet.  Over time, I checked back periodically, and really still couldn’t figure out if the site was for real or not.  Today, I received an email from the site (I signed up for notifications), indicating that new content was available.  So, I thought I might check it out again, but one thing caught my eye.  Take a look at the Sent From email address:

What???

 

That, alone, should be enough to scare me away, but then at the bottom of the email, it talks about a special application available for being a subscriber of the site (which I’m not, actually).

This smells of scam and potential malware.  I’d avoid this site at any cost.

  1. Thanks for the heads-up on this, as someone furiously chasing as much free content as possible it’s always nice to know what to avoid.

  2. True, defenately a possible scam and phishing trap.
