MySpace Hacker/Spammer Targets Its Market

Someone has been hacking their way into MySpace user accounts and posting bulletins for them (bulletins are a way of communicating with all your MySpace friends without e-mailing them all individually). Sneaky thing is, the bulletin is about Six Flags Magic Mountain and the targets are a good number of residents in the Santa Clarita Valley, which is home to Six Flags in its Valencia neighborhood setting.

hey guys, just heard from a friend who works for Six Flags corporate that they giving free season passes , to friends and family of their employees. The company will be 45 this year and they r doing it to celebrate the Six Flags' aniversary . They have alocated 450 passes per park, so don't miss it. Take a look at their website to see whether there are passes left for your zip code (the promo just started, so there probably are). I just entered my zip code, filled out a few surveys and bam im getting my passes!!! so cool, decided i should share... here's the site to get them

Someone should have let the hacker know that the marketing message would have been more effective if they added "OMG!!!! Six Flags is soon to close FOREVER! This is your last chance!"
