International fraud

My Yahoo Email was hacked and changed to new password, so now unable to log into my account.

Afterwards, my email was sent to some of my friend contact list in the email by hacker to demand for help.

I'd like to share this information to all of u to beware of this SCAM, and do not think email is the best way to exchange secret informations.

I could say EMAIL IS DISHONEST TRUST WORTHY.

Luckily, this yahoo email is not my officially use.

Do anyone of u experience the same fraud?

So sorry to hear that it just happened to you, but we knew this thing long ago. All social networks are not safe for sharing personal information. The same applies to all free email accounts out there.

I got heaps of email from my friends selling viagar or other stuff, it is very clear from the context of the email it is not from my friends.

non of my friend told me I send them funny stuff, so I assume my account has not been hacked.

Internet scam: Scores of suspects sent to China


http://www.phnompenhpost.com/index.p...-to-china.html

Internet scam
Sixty Chinese and Taiwanese nationals arrested on Monday for alleged involvement in an extortion racket were deported to China yesterday as details emerged of the scope of the scam – reportedly encompassing most of Southeast Asia.

National police spokesman Kirt Chantharith said yesterday the suspects had been sent on a special flight.

Voice of America reported yesterday that Taiwanese authorities had said more than 800 people had been arrested in hundreds of locations across Asia.

The 300 Taiwanese and 500 Chinese suspects had been arrested in China, Taiwan, Cambodia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Laos, Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines, VOA said Taiwanese authorities had confirmed.

So there is nothing you can do other than creating a new account?

Kingdom suspected origin of cyber attack

http://www.phnompenhpost.com/index.p...er-attack.html

Betfair, the world’s largest online betting company, has named Cambodia as the possible origin of a cyber attack in which payment information from 2.3 million users was stolen.

Cambodia was the only country that had been identified by Betfair, which is based in Britain, in connection with the security breach on March 14 last year, company spokesman Jonathan Lates said yesterday.

The attack was detected in May of last year, although users were not informed of the theft nor was the security breach mentioned in a pros-pectus before the company’s 1.39 bill-ion pound (US$2.17 billion) initial public offering last October, according to English newspaper the Telegraph.

When reached by phone yesterday, officials at the National Information Communications Technology Development Authority were unaware the Kingdom had been named in the company’s report.

A proxy attack via a Cambodian server might have led Betfair to believe the attack had originated in the Kingdom, Cambodia-based information security consultant Bernard Alphonso said yesterday.

Computers in the Kingdom’s hundreds of internet cafes were highly infected with viruses and pirated software use was endemic, making it easy to launch attacks that originated in other countries but appeared to come from Cambodia, Alphonso said.

“Many computers here are infected and can be easily manipulated without the user knowing,” he said, adding that a general lack of internet security awareness among companies, the government and personal users made Cambodia a possible host, and target, of cyber crime.

Betfair’s claims come after the Post reported that 60 Chinese and Taiwanese nationals had been arrested in Cambodia last week over telephone scam allegations.
