Phish Sighting

If you get this in your email, it's a scampurported by someone pretending to be with Red Hat, an open-source software company:

Subj: Someone tried to access your personal root server.

Someone with ip address 54.213.34.66 tried to access your personal root server.

Please click the link below and enter your root server information to confirm that you are not currently away. Also we will make you an update for your system.

Click here to confirm your account information.

I got the email, too. The one I got cites the same IP address as the one Z Trek reports. Did an IP search on 54.213.34.66 out of curiosity - it belongs to Merck in Rahway, New Jersey.

Now if there were only a utility to find an email sender's true identity...
