  • Western Union spam; Super Bowl SEO

    A couple of items of note:

    Western Union spam with Trojan

    Sunbelt Software reports that it has seen a fair number of spams with a Trojan payload. The goal is to make you think there’s a money transfer notification from Western Union.

    For people that don’t get transfers from Western Union this is just another lame spam. But for those folks that get Western Union transfers this email could do some damage.

    Sunbelt reports the payload of these emails is Trojan.Perfloger. After the Trojan gets executed the victim sees a text file that looks fairly legit.

    The Super Bowl of malware

    The Super Bowl malware fun has begun. Leading up to Sunday’s big game between the Pats and Giants the SEO results are going to be rigged to point
    you to malware.

    It’s a common refrain. Whenever there’s a big event that’ll result in searches you get SEO gamers.

    Trend Micro pointed out that the SEO manipulation began a week ago. Look for more attempts as we get closer to the game.

    People are too naive sometimes and that's how villains make money easily. There were many more similar manipulations after and not a few people have fallen into the trap. It's a pity that such things happen. Some people work hard for their money, but some just fool others. I have my own business and I work with blazemedia.co.uk to promote it, this way I gather more clients. Regarding the Super Bowl malware, I was warned to never type “free Super Bowl” into any of my search engines because the links there might be loaded with malware and spyware, so consider that.

        The reason they won was because of an amazing performance by Eli Manning in the fourth quarter. He threw two touchdowns (both of which took the lead), no interceptions, and completed nine of fourteen passes in the fourth. The Patriots simply lost because they were outplayed.

          OMG...that reminded me about one of my friend’s friend that is like really really good at SEO. So we were at a party and we were discussing the possibility of something like that to happen. He explained me a lot about SEO and how everything is working cause he is SEO Consultant. The guy is like really cool. You definitely need to find more about him. He’s a great specialist. I’m pretty sure he’s that great that he could totally pull something like that up. Of course he didn’t, but the fact that he is good as that is remarkable.
