Watch those blogs. ZDNet reported that new blogs are popping up that contain malicious code like keystroke logging trojans. According to the report, many of these blogs are on legitmate hosted sites (I assume the free ones). As a platform for blogging is just a few clicks away, and with thousands of new blogs being created each day, this comes as no surprise. Note that most of the sites in question, which according to Websense number just a few hundred at last count, are using disquised email lures from popular instant messaging services to attract attention.

The Slashdot crowd has just put their two cents in on this matter, and in a manner I have come to know and love – loaded with incredulity and scepticism.
