Windows Live Re-activate your account Phishing

Tell your friends:
Phishing attempt against Windows Live users. This phishing email appears to be from Microsoft, however, the return email address clearly indicates that it's not genuine. Phishers claim that your account information is incorrect. You need to re-activate your account by logging into your Windows Live account. Although, the anchor text for an URL link is disguised as a legitimate URL, it actually redirects you to infected Word Press blog where the phishing web page is hosted. I have to admit that the phishers have made very realistic copy of Windows Live login screen. So, if you've received the following phishing email, please delete it from your inbox.
