Would you plug in a USB that you got in the mail? ... or one you find in the street.

This scam has been doing the rounds today. I got this email from Greater Manchester Police. The image I've seen elsewhere had the GMP crest/logo at the top to make it look authoritative but my email client doesn't download images from emails that it suspects are spam. The rest of it looks like this:

The other one I saw said the person was doing 60 in a 35 mph limit...

If you get one of these, delete it straight away and DO NOT click on the 'Check The Photographic Evidence' link!

You should be aware of this & make sure your phone PIN is not used anywhere else:

Meet PINLogger, the drive-by exploit that steals smartphone PINs
Sensors in phones running both iOS and Android reveal all kinds of sensitive info.
