As the holiday season approaches, brace yourself for an onslaught of e-mails imitating Amazon, Best Buy, Wal-Mart, and other shopping sites.
Experts are already seeing phishing spam that is difficult to distinguish from a real e-mail from legitimate stores and web sites.
Promises of free shipping, coupons, and other bait to lure you into clicking a link to retrieve the code or coupon will initiate the installation of a virus or malware.
