TOKYO (MacHouse) – We identified the first set of spam ads that were intended to direct Internet users to Mac-related websites in January 17. These spam ads indicated that two Mac-related websites, those of MacRumors (macrumors.com) and The Omni Group (omnigroup.com), were exploited for pharmacy spam. Today, a group of spam terrorists using various IP addresses including 18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 circulated at least 10 spam comments in 10 hours to advertise spam posts appearing at forums.macrumors.com and forums.omnigroup.com. (See Screenshot 01-2) This large-scale spam ad circulation campaign started at 04:48 AM (US PST), January 23.
