Free iPhones?

Filed Under: Malware, Spam

Only a few hours left before Apple iPhone arrives in stores, but why bother if you can get one "FOR FREE"?!

A variety of spam campaigns playing on the iPhone hype have been arriving on our traps for quite some time now. One of the campaigns received today offers $600 (to go towards your iPhone) for taking a survey. The campaign featured a range of spammer techniques like "hashbusters", "web bugs", character obfuscations, varying URLs and subject headers:

"Be the first to get an Apple iPhone On Us at N0 C0st"
"Get Your Fun  iPhone Toy Quickly"
"Be the First to Get the Revolutionary iPhone"

I wonder how long it will take before we see e-mail luring people to a malicious website by offering free iPhones?
