There has been an attack against the job site Monster.com. Be on the lookout for new phishing scams and other nasty business that can come from having a monster.com account compromised.
"The personal information filched from Monster.com includes names, e-mail addresses, home address, phone numbers and resume identification numbers, said Hidalgo, who traced the data to a remote server used by the attackers to store the stolen information."
Explains a couple spam items I got yesterday to my personal email (the one I protect closely) instead of Hotmail or Yahoo. Fortunately my ISP mail caught them and put them as Spam, which I immediatly deleted (even if it is Monster).
So... when will I get a phone call about a job with the Nigerian Lottery. [img]/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]
Lol, I love to see news like this, actually, because it shows how much BS people put out there about security. I mean the same thing happened to Microsoft a while back with Messanger. They were serving ads that linked to a malware site.
Just goes to show that nobody really cares about security except the people who are trying to break in somewhere
