Facebook Survey Scammers Adopt Fast Flux Techniques
Facebook scammers are trying to stay ahead of the social network's security measures by incorporating fast flux-like techniques into their attacks.
Security researchers from Symantec describe a recent variation of the "profile spy" scam, which lures users with promises of showing them their Facebook stalkers.
Scams adopting this theme have repeatedly reappeared during the past year under different names, suggesting that the lure is still quite successful.
However, unlike most attacks of this type, the spam messages don't advertise links to rogue Facebook apps, but compromised legit websites.
