Spam and phishing mail

Swine flu spam

It’s no surprise that spammers have jumped on the swine flu bandwagon. We’ve been seeing a lot of short, pithy messages, ranging from the relatively innocuous

New medicine to prevent swine flu http://….com

to ones clearly designed to exploit the current widespread public unease:

Stop risk of being killed by swine flu! http://kp….com/

The link leads to a site which isn’t offering anything new – I spent a while trawling it for swine flu vaccines, but didn’t find anything apart from the usual Viagra, Cialis, and conventional cold remedies.

Maybe this is for the best – any swine flu treatment offered by spammers would undoubtedly be fake, just like most of the rest of their wares.
