August 02, 2012Xanga Malware Lure
Xanga, a blogging site, is the latest lure that malware pushers are using to trick unsuspecting recipients into downloading potentially dangerous junk. The message claims to come from Xanga, advising you of a comment someone made on your blog entry:
The message body got pretty mangled along the way because in the one I saw, a bunch of CSS code was included in the text-only version, and rendered in my email reader. Can you say "doofus?" A quick look at the message's headers clearly shows the message has no connection whatsoever to xanga.com.
It was easy for me to suspect foul play right in my inbox list because I don't belong to Xanga. But I suspect any Xanga member might be fooled into clicking the link. I just hope those folks have antivirus software installed, or they could be in for a world of hurt.Posted on August 02, 2012 at 09:49 AM
