How safe are MySpace Trackers

Well certainly not this one … I landed here quite by accident while researching something else …



As you can see (again) Vista/IE7 jumps up with a warning prompting the user prior to allowing … in this case another exploit to enter the system. It appears to me that StalkerTrack has been hacked and malicious code injected into the site.



I’ve highlighted the culprit (in red) above, which will be added to the next HOSTS file update. The sad part is how popular StalkerTrack seems to be, and how many innocent MySpace users have added links to this tracker to their MySpace pages.



As you can see Google has already determined this site to be a risk, but look at the amount of results = 185,000! Now I do not use MySpace, however due to it’s popularity it is becoming a target by the evil-doers. So MySpace users be careful what you add to your site … you just might be unknowingly promoting malware …
