Facebook scam site hiding behind blogspot.com green rating

Post by Papa Grover » Tue Aug 09, 2011 2:33 pm

Please rate the site: hxxp://united-airlines-tickets​.blogspot.com

It's connected to a variation of the old "Two free tickets from Southwest Airlines" phototagging scam. The scammers tag random FB members on a picture and attach the link in the comments. Then they post a comment with the link in the text and like the comment - all done by the same compromised FB account user. Problem is, since the site isn't ranked, it inherits the blogspot.com rating and shows up as "Green" on Facebook and google. Please rate this site!

Green to Red. Seems like a fairly open and shut case.

EDIT:

Having agreed. Sophos' own security site has more tracking bugs than the FBI. Not so much an aficionado of that one, either; and unlike FB, I routinely utilize their product.
