"As many as one in every 500 web addresses posted on Twitter lead to sites hosting malware"

http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2009/10/twitter_malware/


"This time the spyware appears to have the ability to create fake Facebook accounts and endow the profiles with these fake links. Itís troubling because it means the hackers have figured out a way to endrun around the captcha system that usually ensures the account creator is a real human."

I don't even bother anymore. Decaptcher charges like $20 for a thousand captchas or something silly like that, and from my records they have about a 98% success rate.
