‘Justin Bieber found dead’ hoax explained.

Clever trick makes SPAM look ‘trustable’

Spammers have found an uncontrolled redirect on the BBC website and are using it to spread a hoax about the death of Justin Bieber.

The link points to the following domain : http://newsimg.bbc.co.uk/go/-/[hostile-website-url] which was presenting the link as a BBC web-story.

The story is false, and is a cleverly designed hoax, sharing it to your wall when the video is clicked. Please tell your friends and help them stop its rapid spread.
