Pondlife scammers abuse Air France tragedy
Carradine death also cheap fodder
Cybercrooks are once again taking advantage of current events to push malware.
Prurient interest in the death of Kill Bill star David Carradine is being used to promote Twitter updates containing links to sites punting rogueware. The attack is the latest in a string of assaults over the last week or so that abuse the Trending Topics feature of Twitter to promote scareware.
Meanwhile, search engine result poisoning is being used so that searches involving the disappearance of Air France Flight 447 off the coast of Brazil point to scareware affiliate websites. The complex attack uses multiple site redirections, as explained in a blog posting by Trend Micro here. ®
@'A lot of people make money from death'
If you cannot tell the difference between someone providing services with "real" products (ie flowers, cards, something "entertaining" to read as well as to find out what is (allegedly) going on) and the scammers who offer things like "free fat-busting pills", "manhood enlargements", etc then I hope you never rise any higher up the ladders of power than the puddle of mud the ladder stands in.
Reg getting lazy
So how have Reg added value here? Couldn't just have the savvy to make money from it directly so you're trying to make second-order money by writing articles about pond life.
Reg, you're getting lazy. You didn't even make playmobil reconstructions.
