IMDB "Your password is too weak" spam / thepharmhealth.com

This spam leads to a fake pharma site at thepharmhealth.com:

From:      IMDb User Protection [do-not-reply-here@imdb.com]
Subject:      Your password is too weak

This is an automatic message from the Internet Movie Database (IMDb) registration system.
Our system detected your password is too weak. Short passwords are easy to guess.

Please follow this link :


If you used your IMDb password at any other sites, you'll need to change those passwords as well.

It's an interesting and novel approach, and it could easily be adapted for malware rather than fake prescriptions. thepharmhealth.com is hosted on (SIA Lattelecom, Latvia).

I got one of these and accidentally clicked the link. Just in case, though, I ran a norton scan, and now am checking for spyware. After I realized my mistake (I usually catch these!) I reported it as phishing attack on my gmail email menu
