Linkedin users: beware!
Please read this article. Don’t get infected.
Users of the social notworking site LinkedIn started receiving shedloads of spam email messages in a bid to recruit them into the Zeus botnet.
From 10am yesterday users of the business-focused version of Facebook started getting mail with a fake contact request containing a malicious link.
Cisco Security Intelligence said that these messages accounted for as much as 24 percent of all spam sent within a 15-minute interval today.
If users were dumb enough to click on the links in the email they would be taken to a web page that says “PLEASE WAITING…. 4 SECONDS..” and then redirects them to Google.
While it looks like nothing has happened, during the four second the victim’s PC will be attempted to be infected with the ZeuS Malware.
