    Yourmusic.com banners compromised
    I discovered an peculiar type of parasite activity - it appears that some Flash banners promoting Yourmusic.com have been injected with malicious code that redirects visitors to a fake anti-spyware site.

    There are NOT CJ banners - it looks like the banners might be part of an independent program. The redirect is nothing to do with Yourmusic.com, but it does appear to have been inserted into the banner code itself.

    If you are running Flash ads for yourmusic.com then you may want to check them.. carefully.

    Geeze, what a mess! It's astonishing how much effort these yahoos put into stealing when the same effort, honestly made, could be just as profitable. I guess some folks are just bent that way.

    And where the heck have you been lately, Mr. Moo? Are you so busy tracking down bad guys that you don't have time to hang out with us anymore?

    It's pretty cunning - especially the injection of tracking code into the banners.

    Ah maybe I'll say hi in the Midnight Cafe.
