Spammers abuse Wikileaks hype

The publicity that Wikileaks gained during the last week couldn’t be left unused by the spammers. We are seeing a spam campaign with mails pretending to come from the account of Wikileaks on Twitter.

The email is very well crafted, containing a fake version of the headers which Twitter is adding. However, it can be easily seen that the email is sent from a bot. The fake link redirects to an online Pharmacy website.
