Malicious Spam - ''YouTube Service Has Sent You a Message"

There are a few fake e-mails being sent around, with the assumption that they are coming from YouTube. My free anti-virus software Avast, was able to block a few of the webpages that I was taken to, after clicking on the links in a few of the email messages. The webpages are embedded with viruses, malware and spywares.
