Spam Campaign Targets MySpace Users
Sophos's has issued a warning regarding an aggressively distributed Spam campaign that uses the name of MySpace in an attempt to phish information from music lovers. The e-mails have been spammed out to many computer users around the globe in the last week, luring them into clicking on links to a web site posing as an online music store.
The subject headings of the Spam e-mails typically read, 'New message from on MySpace sent on '. Using the guise of a MySpace contact e-mail, the Spammers heighten the chances of potential victims opening the e-mail. The message in the e-mail then informs the user, 'You've got a new song from on MySpace!' and invites them to click on a link to hear 'your MySpace music'.
