How a free breakfast day at McDonalds can lead to malware danger
I don't know if you're the sort of person who wakes up in the morning, and the first thing you long for is a McDonalds' breakfast - but if you are, you might just be exactly what malware authors are looking for.
Researchers at SophosLabs have seen a malicious email that has been spammed out across the world in the last couple of days pretending to come from McDonalds.
The email claims that the fast-food giant is offering free breakfasts in each and every of their many thousands of restaurants around the globe. Chances are that there are many people who would love the prospect of munching on a McDonalds first thing in the morning........
But beware! There is no such thing as a free lunch.. breakfast......
