Beware All Bloggers!!!

I got this very important news from BBC warning all bloggers regarding the spread of viral storms attacking Google's Blogger site. The site is being used by hackers who are posting fake entries to some blogs that could infect a Windows PC.

The following text were taken from http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/6970368.stm

The fake entries contain weblinks that lead to booby-trapped downloads that could infect a Windows PC. The Blogger attack is the latest in a series by a gang that has managed to hijack hundreds of thousands of PCs.

The entries on the blogs have the same text as some of the spam distributed by the group behind the attacks. These attempt to trick people into clicking on links and downloading booby-trapped files using cleverly crafted messages.

Some pose as YouTube links others claim to be looking for testers of software packages or digital greetings cards.

Security experts estimate that the group can send out so much junk mail because they have hijacked so many Windows PCs via successive campaigns. Some suspect that the group has infected more than one million PCs over the last eight months.
