KABC: Identity Theft Linked To Popular Website

April 27th, 2013



Beverly Hills police have recently issued a warning over a website lately popular with the young adult crowd. The website, loosely referred to as a "fortune teller machine" which retrieves a user's email after a full name is entered into its search bar, reportedly installs Trojans on the computer once that email is opened. While the damage this virus causes is currently unknown, it's very likely that it relates to identity theft. Any information as to the source of this malignant attack should be directed to BHPD's ACRU desk.
