Spammers Promote Steve Jobs "Charity Fund"

 Analysis by: Jona Pereira

Spammers are still out there taking advantage of Steve Jobs' demise. Trend Micro received a sample email message promoting a supposed charity fund for young and gifted programmers and web coders in honor of the late Apple co-founder.

Written in plain text, the said message aims to persuade recipients to donate funds to the account indicated in the mail. However, this account was discovered to be an account for an online casino payment site. Trend Micro strongly advises users to be wary of such messages and avoid disclosing important information to unknown sites.
