The following item is not a hoax.

As a member of C.E.R.T. and S.A.R.-3 I receive emergency notifications from The Emergency Email & Wireless Network.  I received a warning this morning of a “phishing attack” trying to get users to register on a website in order to get the H1N1 Vaccination.  I will paste a portion of the text here and then to verify this for yourself, please click on the link below to go to the news article:

CDC has received reports of fraudulent emails (phishing) referencing a CDC sponsored State Vaccination Program.

The messages request that users must create a personal H1N1 (swine flu) Vaccination Profile on the cdc.gov website. The message then states that anyone that has reached the age of 18 has to have his/her personal Vaccination Profile on the cdc.gov site.

The CDC has NOT implemented a state vaccination program requiring registration on www.cdc.gov.
Users that click on the email are at risk of having malicious code installed on their system.
