Linked-in spam

I have been swamped with spam purporting to come from linked-in (in fact, it doesn't). I found an article at:

http://blogs.cisco.com/security/comments/c...in_spam_attack/

Which identified the spam as an attempt to infect PCs with the Zeus virus. the article also says:

This morning (27th September), these messages accounted for as much as 24% of all spam sent within a 15-minute interval.

Nasty....

As pointed out earlier I too am getting hundreds of these daily, maybe this should be merged with my previous post.
Indeed, in the tracking URLs you provided at http://forum.spamcop.net/forums/index.php?...ost&p=76593

I will prefer leaving this topic on its own - the other is more generally about changes to the type of spam currently seen and contains no direct reference to Linked-in spam. With the volumes now inflicted on the spamsuffering public I'm guessing this topic will be popular.
