SkiifGeek's Journal: MySpace And Fake Videos

Journal by SkiifGeek

Continuing with their disclosure of security issues on MySpace, Mashable.com have reported that over a thousand MySpace user accounts are being used to spread malware from noted adware purveyors Zango. Posing as fake video links to YouTube, the images presented on the MySpace pages redirect to an adult site before installing (following a licence agreement) adware from Zango.

While the ratio of MySpace accounts that are exploiting this dubious ethical process are extremely small when compared to the tens of millions of valid accounts, comments posted in response to the Mashable article suggest that the process has been in use since the start of October, and has only recently had action taken on it.

Find out about this information and more, when it happens, with Sunnet Beskerming Security Notification Services.
