MySpace phishing scam targets music fans
Money, money, money

Con-men have developed a phishing attack targeting MySpace music fans that highlights the evolving use of social engineering techniques in money-making spam emails.

Junk emails featuring the attack have been spammed out to thousands of computer users around the globe in the last week, to trick them into visiting one of a series of bogus websites that pose as an online music store. The emails typically pose as MySpace contact emails, increasing the chances that prospective marks will be duped by the messages.

The message in the email informs recipients, "You've got a new song from <name> on MySpace!", and invites them to click on a link that directs them to a site claiming to sell MP3 music....
