Black Friday Spam

Publish date: November 08, 2010

The increase in number of shoppers during the holidays is usually paralleled by the increase in cybercriminal attacks. The team found spam mail related to a Black Friday Event. Black Friday is the first Friday after Thanksgiving Day, which is also one of the biggest shopping sale events in the United States. Unfortunately, spammers took advantage of this event and used it as their subject in their spamming activities. In this spam run, spammers try to lure victims into visiting a website offering cheap sex enhancement products.
