New Round of Windows Mail Viruses

Lately I've been hit by people sending a legit-looking email, wanting to click on something.  Since I have a fairly well hardened Linux machine, I clicked on them.  They want your MS net password.  Contacting these people, I find they clicked on something, and all those emails were sent out.

I know these people are using plain vanilla MS outlook and ie.  I'm assuming these worms are using a new trick, so maybe any ms system can't resist.

I've told these people to consider using something else, but I know it is hopeless.  Just be on the alert for these things.  :)
