YAGG: Google Talk

February 24, 2009

Tweets and posts are flying by about an alleged pfishing exploit for Google email. Mashable reports here that another issue may be poking its snout into hapless users’ lives. Adam Ostrow wrote:

Gmail is now being attacked by a phishing scam that is spreading like wildfire.

If true, YAGG strikes again. You get message “check me out” with a link to a tinyurl. Click the puppy and you go to “a site called ViddyHo.” Lucky you. Your contacts get an email. Nifty. Love those tiny urls which mask the destination url.
