Fake

Create a fake tweet using any twitter username. Here is a a fun way to make it appear as if a Twitter user has tweeted something. You can pick any user you want, enter any text, and create an individual, look-alike tweet. TweetForger’s intent is to cause people to realize and think about just how subconsciously willing they are to suspend belief. If I get a tweet from a celebrity addressed to me, referring to something that only my friends know, do I immediately realize that it’s a joke, or do I even for a minute actually think that this celebrity is actually tweeting me? If I do, does that say something about me or does it say something about the world in which we all live? We are using Twitter “tweets” as an example of the kind of Internet communication that people tend to accept as fact, but the cultural phenomenon on which we are commenting could just as easily happen with Wikipedia, Facebook, or any other site on which people rely for information.

There are several ways to make money online. One is by displaying ads at your website. But there are every kind of people out there. Fair and unfair. I wanna share a strange experience of mine with all of you making money online. Publisheradnetwork claiming to be the ‘Global Ad Network’ is supposed to be an advertising company providing advertisement solution for publishers and advertisers but that is a fake, fake, fake company. This advertising network does not exist. They have a website where they claim that they have payouts average over 50% higher than Google AdSense. Somebody from this company with official email will approach you (in my case thomas.lewis@publisheradnetwork.com) and would say to try this network. After more than 30 emails they decided something and agreed to give ads to one of my websites. I then asked about the advertising formats and they showed me two websites (askmadden.com and codmaps.org) which were displaying advertisements from this network but now they are not.

I advise you to visit Microsoft Malware Protection Center regularly to get updated about latest threats, security news and advice. Microsoft has put together a list of AV rogues which are detected by the company’s antivirus products, including Microsoft Security Essentials, Forefront Client Security, etc.

According to Microsoft:

Rogue security software programs typically mimic the general look and feel of legitimate security software, claiming to detect a large number of nonexistent threats and urging the user to “activate” the software to remove them. Some families emulate the appearance of the Windows Security Center or unlawfully use trademarks and icons to misrepresent themselves. Rogue security software spreads through familiar malware distribution mechanisms, like spam and exploits, and through customized tactics, like a fake Webbased security scanner. After installation, some rogue security software families take other actions to evade detection or to frighten the user into paying.

Rogue security software displays false or misleading alerts about infections or vulnerabilities on the victim’s computer and offers to fix the supposed problems for a price. It has become one of the most common methods that attackers use to steal money from victims. These are programs that mask themselves as legitimate security programs offering protection from malware, spyware, and other threats, but actually use social engineering to obtain money from victims, and offer poor or nonexistent protection.
