Online Striptease Scam Makes Users Break the Codes

Share

Scammers developed a new software, with a sexy girl alluring the users for watching striptease to crack the online barriers.

The attractive blonde appears on the screen promising she will take off each of the article of her clothes after the user enters the code usually required to tell the human from computers. The unsuspecting users enter the password made of oddly shaped numbers and letters several times to prove they are humans, but the woman didn't fully take off her clothes. In spite of the promised striptease, the program restarts again.

The development of the online striptease scam is actually made to go through CAPTCHA (Completely Automated Public Turing test )system commonly used to prevent automated software to weaken the service of a system and protect banks, e-mail and other services from online crimes. CAPTCHA asks a user to complete a test, that can be presumably solved by humans only.

Researchers at Trend Micro are worried that scam will target financial institutions, developing the program that will defeat the CAPTCHA safeguard.
