Another spamming "social networking" site — Yaari

Got an email from a friend the other day, asking me to connect to her in the social networking site "Yaari". Never heard of it before. Figured, it was yet another social networking site that fools you into signing up, steals your address book, and then sends a bunch of fake invites that look like they came from you.

Two days later, I get this:
Subject: Don't click on Yaari!

If you recieve a mail from me about Yaari, please DON't click on it!!
That is a SPAM that I hit on!


Well, no surprises there. Remember kids, don't give your passwords out to strange web sites.
