CNN, MSNBC Spammers Downgrading Their EMails

| | Comments (0)
This is pretty interesting. After a week or two of seeing CNN spam, then MSNBC spam (both of which allude to "breaking news stories" in order to get peoples attention), it seems the people behind those attacks are now sending out plain emails (with none of the allusions to being from major news networks) that simply say "BREAKING news" in the title field:

If you visit the link in the email, you'll see this:

I don't believe I've seen the length, rating and viewcount under the video before so that's likely a new tactic they've employed. Looks like they need to hire a spellchecker though...
