Spam via text is nothing new
, but it seems crooks are now turning to SMS to cultivate legions of zombie PCs for denial-of-service attacks. The ruse apparently begins when an unsuspecting individual receives a text message thanking them for subscribing to a dating service at the pricey rate of $2 a day, which also includes instructions on how to cancel the service through a website. When the user gets to their PC and navigates to the site, they're instructed to download an executable, and you can probably guess what happens from there
. Our question is, if you don't try to cancel, do you get any dating action out of it?
