Have you received an email with the subject "important", "invoice" , or "new" from a friend? Think about it, does it make sense that your friend is sending you an invoice or an "important" document?
Did the email just have a link, especially one ending with the letters "php." Despite what you might think, it is not your friend sending you that link.
Here is an example. This was received from gmail (Google) and trapped by the anti-virus filter at User Friendly IS (identifying info removed and links made unclickable):

egister/tmpl/new/index.php> <--- The LINK -- DON'T CLICK IT
The above email was sent via a gmail server to a large list of users by someone who probably clicked on link in a similar email.
Can you tell by looking at that link what it is? No, and neither can I. Using some tools, I "clicked" on the link (actually just downloaded the content outside of a normal web browser) and what did I find? An email phising scheme. It was a web page trying to get you to enter your email credentials so you could get that important document.
DON'T DO IT. DON'T CLICK THAT LINK.
If you believed the email, clicked the link and entered your email username password than the person behind the email that you received now has your email account and password. I'm guessing that the important document contains a trojan Microsoft Word Document/PDF/flash file that will execute code on your system that will encrypt your files and make you pay to un-encrypt them or it could just grab you address book and spam all your friends. Who knows what these miscreants will do.
If you think an email is suspicious, it probably is.
BTW, the software at the link was Joomla, but the interesting thing, it was embedded in a Wordpress install.
REMEMBER DON'T CLICK THAT LINK
Now here are some links you can click
