Can we borrow your MSN?

Recently we have seen several URLs leading to a website where a company called TST Management offers Pictures for MSN/ICQ Friends. The page contains a login box for MSN and a similar one for ICQ.

MSN stealer

Below the login are the Terms and Conditions TST Management wants you to agree to:

"you hereby fully authorize TST Management, Inc to send messages
of a commercial nature via Instant Messages and E-Mails on behalf of third parties"

They also state:

"We may temporarily access your MSN account to do a combination
of the following:
1. Send Instant Messages to your friends promoting this site.
2. Introduce new entertaining sites to your friends via Instant Messages."

So, by logging in and getting access to "their" pictures you let TST Management use your MSN account to send advertisements to everyone on your contact list using your name. A good deal? We say NO.
