Hackers rob banks using GOOGLE maps
Tuesday. 2.20.07 5:01 pm
Hackers are using google maps to rob banks in Australia.
"The hackers could correlate user information acquired from the key-logger with knowledge of where a user is located from Google Maps to masquerade as them," Camissar said. "With this they could access bank accounts and
social security numbers."
HOW DOES SOMETHING LIKE THIS HAPPEN??
Sophos senior technology consultant Graham Cluley said users are directed to a 404 error page which downloads the code.
"Recipients of the e-mail are encouraged to click on a link to obtain the latest information on Howard's health; however, this link takes users to a Web page which downloads malicious code to their PC, and then displays the real '404 page not found' error page," Cluely said.
keep your eyes on the look out for suspicious email activity such as this to avoid your IP address being compromised.
