The first big Google+ spam campaign blasted out by pill-pushers
In what may very well be the first major cybercriminal campaign exploiting the Google+ brand, spammers are sending out bogus Google+ invitations that in reality point to online pharmacies.
The messages look similar to the real emails that users may receive from friends who are already members of Google+.
However, clicking on the links will not take you to the new social network, but instead take you to a pharmacy website set up to sell the likes of Viagra, Cialis and Levitra to the unwary. In the case of the site shown below, they even have a special July 4th promotion - just in case you were hoping for additional fireworks on the night.
