All Things Techie With Huge, Unstructured, Intuitive Leaps

Kids Live Safe Email Spam -- Dangerous


This is the absolutely latest in egregious spam.  It purports to be from Kids Live Safe.com which apparently alerts you if there is a registered sex offender in your neighborhood.  The website itself uses scare tactics and sells email alerts.

However, this spam is from another domain, websaving.com and this is a sure sign of a virus or malware injector.  There is embedded script not to display the domain that it takes you to, so you cannot check validity by hovering over it with a cursor.

These are all signs of virus, trojan and malware activity.  Delete it and empty your trash and in now way click on it.

  2. Just got one of these and even though I had not heard of this scam I was immediately suspicious. In this case you can hold your cursor over any of the links and see that it is not from the kids live safe domain.

    1. I see we got another smart user here. I'll be marking that as spam myself.

  3. I just got one. Fortunately, I didn't click on it. It came from "Kids_LiveSafe".
