    Have you opened your Friendster profile lately and checked out who among your Who’s Viewed Melist can be added to your innumerable stalkers?


    The Who’s Viewed Me feature of Friendster allows a person to check out who’s been viewing his/her profile only if he/she also allows others to know that he/she is also checking out theirs.


    Well, I have recently checked out my list of Who’s Viewed Me and found out that there’s a certain Geraldine Artinez from Manila in it.


    Eager to find out who she is, I clicked on her profile to see if we are in the same network of friends. To my surprise, her profile showed what seem to be one of AdultFriendFinder’s Web pages.


    Check out the codes in her profile:


    %3C%61%20%68%72%65%66%3D%22%68%74%74%70%3A%2F%2F%
    61%64%75%6C%74%66%72%69%65%6E%64%66%69%6E%64%65%72%2E%
    63%6F%6D%2F%73%65%61%72%63%68%2F%67%38%31%37%31%32%39%2D%
    70%70%63%3F%6D%61%78%5F%61%67%65%3D%26%72%61%63%65%3D%26%
    70%68%6F%74%6F%3D%26%6C%6F%6F%6B%69%6E%67%5F%66%6F%72%5F%


    In English, clicking the advertisement banners in her profile leads the user’s browser to different Web sites of adultfriendfinder.com.


    As of now, this may be an innocent attempt to promote the dating Web site. However, using Friendster pages to redirect users to a malicious Web site may not be that far behind…
