Lately, I've had to delete about half a dozen spam comments from various entries on my LJ & at other communities. They've all shared a commonality: a single embed & link to a YouTube video in Portuguese titled "Camarate: A confissao de Farinha Simoes" or in English titled "Dying call from prison. Details about Portugal Premier Minister air-crash!"
DO NOT PLAY THE VIDEO.
The video contains a Windows rootkit virus that keylogs your passwords & posts spam using your LJ account, not to mention some other stuff that may be more sinister, all unbeknownst to you.
Known accounts that generate these spammy malware comments:
For the Canadians among us, meet Bill-C11 (formerly Bill C-32). Bill-C-11 does a whole lot that SOPA did with a few extra twists you might not find in the Wikipedia write-up:
*Like your PVR? You can’t keep it under C-11. *Like ripping CDs to your iPod? Say bye-bye. *Hey, do you want to be able to unlock your $500 smartphone and take it to a provider less dedicated to violating your wallet? That won’t be allowed either. *Did you get accused of internet piracy but no evidence has been presented and a trial date hasn’t even been set? Under C-11 your ISP will now be forced to terminate your internet access.
A good samaritan found this cat today in a gutter by Clark Park, half dead. He is now at the Cat Doctor with a body temperature of 90 (normal is 102) and blood PCV of 8. The Cat Doctor housecat, Diamond, is currently donating blood to save his life. During the exam, the vet found that this cat has a microchip. When called, his "owners" reported that he was acting sick, so they put him outside. If this makes you as angry as it makes us, please channel your anger in one of two ways: visit our website at www.citykitties.org and make a donation to help us pay for his care, or share this post and encourage others to do so.
