One click scammers targeting people in Hong Kong

People running one click scams on the internet have seem to taken it one step further by creating new malware in Chinese.

Recently, one click scammers have begun targeting people in Hong Kong by using pop-up windows and registration pages that have been written in Chinese and ask for payment in Hong Kong dollars. In the last month alone, Symantec has blocked more than 8,000 such attempts.

Such scams have been primarily running on adult websites and download malicious software to a users computer.

Such scams primarily were run in Japan but hackers have come into new territory by learning Chinese.
