Top 10 spam celebrities
Angelina Jolie is the most popular celebrity name used by spammers to tempt people into opening unsolicited email, according to new research, reports Telegraph.co.uk
In July 2.28 per cent of all the emails sent contained her name somewhere in the subject field. In total the number grew to 12 million messages. Most of the spam messages detected by internet Security Company Secure Computing last month had prurient subject lines like “Angelia Jolie naked” or “Angelina Jolie nude movie”.
Jolie’s name was used as “link bait” four times more often than Barack Obama, whose name came out second in the survey. While Wanted actress is at #1, Bush’s favorite, the ‘wanted’ guy Osama Bin Laden is at the #8
“Spammers use the names of celebrities – frequently with a sexual twist – to encourage people to open emails which often contain damaging viruses,” writes Matthew Moore.
When clicking on what appear to be video link within the email, computer user downloads malicious files known as Trojans which can take over, attack, and scan data from machines.
“Spam is the delivery medium of choice for social engineering schemes to create a tempting lure for consumers,” said Dr Sven Krasser of Secure Computing. Fucking spammers! I hate them.
