Interesting. Would anyone go to these lengths just to spam an email address or send a potentially hazardous link?
geez they are really good at finding out this stuff
Yes people would through that much trouble to things like this.
Hooray for iPhone viruses that can do nothing more than make you restore!
also, lol @ this guy's fail. No one is that into causing people minor trouble.
pretty much think you missed the point of this and YOU fail. What you dont understand is that phishing is so common now-a-days. There are SOOO many fake websites out there for banks, blogs, myspace, etc. it is really scary and that is partly what he is talking about. Not once did he say anything about iPhone viruses, so i really dont know where you came up with that but you are wrong.
Phishing with an iPhone? The Safari app is not linked to the Mail app at all, so the URL trick could only be used for viruses. Phishing would do no good because it can't find the e-mail you clicked the link from, so they can't spam/hack into it via spamming a 3G or WiFi connection that has no route to the e-mail address.
I understand for the downloading, but that's considering that you're downloading something from a publicly viewable source or from a spam e-mail, neither of which is smart on ANY computer from a valuable e-mail address.
Wow. This guys kinda stupid. Now I know how to spam people.
Just one fake link to a fake paypal/online banking page and you have BIG problems
It says right in the article that he is talking about websites that TRICK you into entering your personal information and such. i understand the website would not be able to tell your email address right away but if the site looks legit. that it what he is saying. in NO way did he suggest anything about viruses....
