Anniversary of Michael Jackson’s death prompts spam

June 25, 2010

With Friday, June 25 marking the one-year anniversary of the death of pop star Michael Jackson, new rounds of spam are exploiting the occasion. News of Jackson's death spurred spam hours after his passing and has continued in various guises since. A new iteration noted by Symantec this week promotes the sale of a commemorative anniversary coin, soliciting personal information from recipients including credit card details. – GM
