Lazy Bad Guys

Near the end of April, shortly before taking off on a couple weeks of heavy travel, I was poking around in some of the sites involved in the big Fake-AV attack we blogged about a couple of times last month. One domain caught my eye because it showed up as a relay site (in this case, a hacked site being used as a relay to an attack site).

When the attack site came up, I knew I had to grab a screenshot to share:

That's right, they're too lazy to write a version targeting my OS, so they resorted to asking me to come back with something easier to infect.

At least they said "please"….
