BEVERLY HILLS (Hypebot) – It was inevitable. Where ever net traffic goes; the hackers will follow. Now MySpace is a growing target.
"At the end of October, there were a number of links added as friend-comments that went via MySpace's open-redirector (MSPlinks) to exploit sites in China," according to Roger Thompson of Exploit Prevention Labs. "Now, we keep finding MySpace pages that have had some sort of image-background link injected, that are reaching out to a different site in China…The fact that this site (MySpace) is media-rich, with lots of sound and videos means that the FakeCodec trick will be much more effective. The click-er is probably expecting to see a vid, or hear a song, and is quite likely to think he genuinely needs to install something extra."
