Description

I keep receiving this message: "As a security precaution, please click the link to verify your ICQ account http://validate.icq.com/icq/validate.html?uid=..." from my ICQ contacts over and over and over again...

The link leads to an outdated (2007) ICQ validation page and submitting the security code doesn't appear to resolve the problem. I don't receive the messages from all ICQ users and not all the time.

The messages appears to come from users of QIP, a russian ICQ client. Any thoughts?

Hi Patrick, The reason for this message is saving our users privacy. It is not phishing, just a security >procedure.

Dunno.

But not our fault.
