When the report that singing legend Whitney Houston was found dead in her Beverly Hills hotel room, millions had mourned posting Tweets and Facebook statuses regarding the death of the one who brought us the spine-tingling “I Will Always You.” Because of its massive attention worldwide, however, cybercriminals were quick in taking advantage of this ill-fated incident.
There were two web threats that have found by TrendMicro. One was a clickjacking attack found on Facebook, while the other one was a link circulating on Twitter.
Wall posts with the subject “I Cried watching this video. RIP Whitney Houston” comes with link to the supposed video. Clicking it leads them to a Facebook page that contains a link to the video. However, clicking this link only leads to several redirections until users are lead to the usual survey scam site.
