In the article – Web 2.0 Phishing Leading To Multi-Vector Attacks
It is discussed how fraudsters are utilising Web 2.0 to deliver multi-vector attacks and how unaware users are being duped into downloading viruses et al from sites that have been phished.
What amazes me is the amount of time and money Google has put into tracking users to see what paper they use on their derriere when attending a sit in but cannot put an end to the network of scammers out there.
In the very same way as to when I ask to have the word dating blocked from my Adsense account they find this ‘impossible’ to do, so users have to suffer the indignation of image ads appearing on their site for She Male dating which appears on a site for Granny’s Knitting.
Users can help themselves by being more cautious and developing a pattern to be more security aware and to begin utilising sites that have a higher quality about them and have established a trust with their users.
I still wonder how the 419 scammers are able to dupe users out there and can only put it down to the same attitude as people and the Government they elect or maybe don’t elect
