As the holiday shopping season begins, hackers are trying to trick users into revealing their private account information.

Last week, hackers tried to trick Amazon.com users into handing over their passwords and user names. Last holiday season, eBay and other online shopping websites were attacked.

The attempt to steal individual Amazon user names and passwords was a “phishing” attack. Phishing tries to trick users into thinking the request comes from the company.

In this case, hackers sent email to Amazon account holders. The email lied and claimed that 2,592 Amazon account records were stolen. Customers were asked to verify account information in the phishing email. The email’s signature was signed as “Amazon Customer Support.”

Electronics and computer experts say deleting the email is an easy solution.

Amazon says thieves use hoax email that look like they are from Amazon company accounts. Amazon says many phishing emails contain misspelled words and bad grammar.

The company says it never asks for personal information, passwords or bank account numbers.

WORD OF THE WEEK

a pipe dream

Meaning: A pipe dream is a plan or a dream for the future that could never come true or be achieved.

For example:

The idea of a perfect world in which everyone lives in peace and harmony is just a pipe dream.

Pipe dreams only ever come true in the movies.

Origin: Metaphorical, and probably related to the fact that the drug opium can be smoked in a pipe, and when it is taken people often have very pleasant, dream-like experiences.

Quick Quiz:

Which of these plans would be a pipe dream for most people?

  1. travelling to your country’s capital city
  2. playing football for Manchester United
  3. watching the Olympic Games on television

Happy Xmas (War Is Over)  by John Lennon

Happy Xmas Yoko

Happy Xmas John

So this is Christmas

And what have you done

Another year over

And a new one just begun

And so this is Christmas

I hope you’ll have fun

The near and the dear one

The old and the young

A very Merry Christmas

And a happy New Year

Let’s hope it’s a good one

Without any fear

And, so this is Christmas

For weak and for strong

For rich and the poor ones

The world is so wrong

And so happy Christmas

For black and for white

For yellow and red ones

Let’s stop all the fight

A very Merry Christmas

And a happy New Year

Let’s hope it’s a good one

Without any fear

And so this is Christmas

And what have we done

Another year over

A new one just begun

And, so happy Christmas

We hope you have fun

The near and the dear one

The old and the young

A very Merry Christmas

And a happy New Year

Let’s hope it’s a good one

Without any fear

War is over, if you want it

War is over, now

Happy Christmas
