Google's Blog Software Hijacked by Scammers

According to Fortinet, hundreds of genuine-looking blogs on Google's blogger.com are actually fake blogs set up to fool visitors and spread script-initiated malware. The security vendor gives examples of the blogs: a supposed fan of the Honda CR450 motor car attempts to infect visitors with the Wonka Trojan while another site redirects visitors to a store front purporting to be Pharmacy Express, a phishing site that has turned up in many spam emails distributed by the Stration worm. "These are not legitimate blogs that were compromised. They appear to be deliberately set up to promote phishing, which is against our terms of service. We are investigating, and blogs found to include malicious code or promote phishing will be deleted," said Google.
