Beware of this Fake Malware Researcher profile on LinkedIn

Hello guys, I would like to warn you all about a profile which has hit my network. The “Erika Stone” profile on LinkedIn, claims to be a Malware recruiter (She recruits malware?, I think Blackshades it looking for work…).

The malware recruiter, has been adding people on LinkedIn which are involved in security research practices and I noticed that she has been accepted by hundreds of people in the last couple of weeks.

Yes, she is hot, but your mind should stay cool. We work in the security field. Do not simply add people just because they have some “titles” in their LinkedIn profile.

The picture is being used at the following LinkedIn profiles:

  • Emily Richardson
  • Erika Stone
