How [not to] scam security people

Check this story out:

http://digg.com/d31WOcy?t

An analysis of a rogue security tool that tries to steal passwords and scam people out of their paypal money and accounts.


This article is a must read, especially for security folks like us whom we have the tendency to download free security tools available on the Internet. What is funny is, that this security guy found this rogue security tool (supposedly used by the FBI) thanks to an article posted in TechCrunch.

My favorite part of that article is the chat session.  :D What a scrub.
