Spam hacked from the Abyss
Just an FYI in case you didn’t already know…
I don’t email people in my address book with bullshit links to bullshit “Make More Than $12,000 a Month” websites.
Like always, the evil is out there, pounding against our shields 24/7, probing for weakness, looking for cracks, hoping to real in another sucker stupid enough to fall for their lies.
This morning my Hotmail account was apparently compromised. When I started receiving quizzical emails from my friends, I knew something was up.
I suspected it was a spoof – just emails when that had been faked to look like they came from me. Still, it made me curious so I checked my “Sent” folder.
Holy shit. This morning between 6:23-6:24am my Hotmail account was used to send 15 fake emails that contained links. In the name of science I tried the links. They led to a website on a bullshit domain name. The page was copied from NBC news to look like a real news story, and proclaimed the awesomeness of making more than $15,000 a month.
Nicole Williams of , never thought that she would consider it, until curiosity got the best of her and she filled out a simple online form. Before she knew it, she discovered her secret to beating the recession, and being able to provide for her family while at home with her three children.
Apparently the page is supposed to be customized with the city of the victim, but in this case, the hackers were incompetent.
Anyway, this is just an FYI to my online friends to reassure you that I don’t send shit like that. I used a secure password but apparently it got hacked. I’ve already changed it.
I love it when the universe notices me.
FOX News hit by hackers – or not?
You know how news organizations like to pre-write obituaries for famous people so they’ll be ready when it finally happens? I’ll bet this was one of those type of dealios!
