received an email "Problem with your webhosting account"


Nov 10, 2010
One of my clients just received the following email, I suspect this to be a scam. Could someone please confirm?

Dear [email protected],

Your webhosting account has been transmitting viruses to our servers and will be deactivated permanently if not resolved.

You are urgently required to sanitize your webhosting account with Norton FTP Scanner; otherwise, your access to webhosting services will be deactivated

Click here now to scan and sanitize your webhosting account

Note that failure to sanitize your webhosting account immediately will lead to permanent deactivation without warning.

We are very sorry for the inconveniences this might have caused you and we assure you that everything will return to normal as soon as you have sanitized your webhosting account.
