Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

Blogger.com, home of the weblog publishing system owned by Google, has been infiltrated by a number of phishing sites, security watchers report.

In some cases, the Stration mass mailer is being used to drive traffic to these fraudulent sites. One such scam is a "storefront" for Pharmacy Express, which redirects from a Blogspot.com (now Blogger.com) link. The site is designed to harvest the personal information of prospective marks.

Beyond the problem of spam and phishing sites, a number of Blogger.com sites have been compromised with malicious code. For example, a blog site seemingly created by a Honda CR450 enthusiast is hosting the Wonka Trojan.

Hundreds of other Blogging sites (covering subjects ranging from Star Wars, school, furniture, Christmas, cars, and girlfriends) are also infected, according to net security appliance firm Fortinet, which has published an advisory highlighting its concerns. ®
