Phishing scam has fishy URLs

There’s a phishing campaign afoot that tries scamming users into believing their email accounts have been compromised. The phishing email claims multiple verification errors have caused the users’ accounts to be blacklisted and the only fix is an immediate login with the proper credentials. The email provides a link that reads CONFIRM YOUR EMAIL, and when users click on it, they are taken to a fake login page based on their particular email service. If they enter their credentials, the info is sent back to the malware’s C&C (command-and-control server).
