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 80.232.131.201 (SIA Lattelecom, Latvia).
