CVE ID: Na
The world’s currently most voluminous spam generator, “Canadian Pharmacy,” is clogging networks with come-ons for male-enhancement drugs and painkillers — and there’s growing belief it has a link to Russian cybercrime groups selling counterfeit medicines.
In this case, “Canadian Pharmacy,” hyping itself as “the #1 Internet Online Drugstore,” is neither Canadian nor a pharmacy. In fact, “Canadian Pharmacy” doesn’t appear to exist as an established Web site but only a shifting hyperlink in a spam message generated by about eight crime botnets.
