buying frenzy. One such bogus offer, arriving Monday in inboxes with the subject line: “Hello:Cyber Monday: BREAKING NEWS – iPad2 Auctions $17!,” promises 90 percent off of iPads and Apple, Graham Cluley, senior technology consultant at anti-virus firm Sophos, said in a blog post
Monday. Another email is falsely claiming discounts on Adobe software. Security experts last week predicted phishing attacks
, survey scams and poisoned search engine results
would increase on Cyber Monday, the unofficial start of the online holiday shopping season.
