Bogus LinkedIn Profiles Harbor Malicious Content

Just so you know, there are fake celebrity profiles on LinkedIn that have links to malicious code. **** it! I was sooo close to clicking that Beyoncé link too. Must. Resist. Urge.

Advanced Threats Researcher Ivan Macalintal found some bogus LinkedIn profiles which contain links to malware, using the names and images of famous personalities such as: Beyoncé Knowles, Victoria Beckham, Christina Ricci, Kirsten Dunst, Salma Hayek, Kate Hudson … and several others.
