Posted in: Legal, Privacy & Security at 06/08/2011 21:14
Cyber conmen are cashing in on interest surrounding the Pottermore website.
Through Pottermore, JK Rowling will release more stories and background from the world of Harry Potter.
Pottermore officially opens in October, and scammers are selling fake accounts for the site that claim to give fans early access.
They are also using search engine poisoning to direct Potter fans to sites that are seeded with viruses and other malicious programs.
