Cyber criminals are starting to use fake blogs to infect visitor’s machines with keylogging software or viruses. Of course! Free blogs, free disk space and many times no scanning. What’s an ass-clown to do? Pass it up?
There are an estimated 200 bogus blogs. I have noticed a proliferation of spamming blogs lately. They post a variety of keywords that are picked up by RSS sniffers like Feedster. And although the article cites social engineering as the proliferator of bogus blog URLs, I’m guessing that newsfeeds also spead them quite a bit.
