Last year, the Microsoft Research study showed that Blogspot, the popular Blogger platform from Google, was one of the top doorway domains for spam. 75% where used as “splogs”, so called re-directs to spam sites.During the last few weeks, MX Lab is seeing new blogspot domains every day and the spam where a Blogspot domain is used has increased to new heights. These spam messages advertise pronography, pharmacy and so on. Nothing new under the sun but we als have reports that malware is being distibuted through this channel. So clicking on a Blogspot link can be hazardous to your computer’s health.
From our point of view, it is time that Google reacts and thightens it’s security a lot. It is clear that it’s too easy for spammers to create new Blogspot domains.
