MySpace Link Hack

Websense has uncovered a new phishing attack against MySpace in which users are directed to a bogus web site from malicious links in MySpace profiles.

This attack is interesting because it bypasses the malicious link filter in MySpace, according to SC Magazine.

This is another example of the difficulty in Web 2.0 of controlling content users can now upload to web sites. Not everybody uploading posts to a site with Web 2.0 technologies is a saint. Imagine that.
