Spam Tactics Getting Worse
from the can't-keep-up dept
There have been a bunch of stories recently about spammers hijacking computers to resend spam (and making it nearly untraceable to its original source). However, this BBC story trying to track down a group of spammers discovered that they’re also hijacking computers owned by major companies to host their own websites. By picking out a random spam, the reporter discovered that the website it took him to was actually hosted by British Airways – who had no idea the site existed.
