I received an e-mail from a friend earlier, alterting me to possible malicious content over on Twitter (surprise surprise), and what I found actually did surprise me for a change.
This spam run didn't lead to a worm, trojan, virus or other infection - but to an IAC website, webfetti.com.
One thing they all have in common, aside from the IAC connection? Well, that would be Twivert. A site that advertises itself as a "Twitter advertising network". Quite why publishers such as IAC, who are presently trying to convince everyone they've gone legit, would think this kind of behaviour was a good thing, is beyond me.
You'll no doubt be surprised to learn, Twivert is run by an Indian based "company" (I'm beginning to wonder if there's so much as a single legit company over there, all of those I've come across have been involved in spam or phishing);
I highly suspect IAC will blame this on rogue affiliates, but personally, I'll not be convinced.
