Another phishing scam, this one spreading via Google Talk

By  

Word tonight is of another phishing scam making the rounds, this one via Google Talk.

If you're targeted, you'll get an instant message from a friend urging you to "check this out" and followed by a tinurl link. Following the link takes you to a site called Viddyho. Should you enter your log-in credentials, the site will send a Google Talk message to all your contacts, urging them, in turn, to "check this out."

If you mistakenly click on this link, don't fill out any info at the Viddyho site. And if you already have, change your google password asap.
