Submission + - Spammers Attack Apple's Ping Social Network (

An anonymous reader writes: Scammers and spammers have deluged the new Ping musical social network, created by Apple and built into the new version of iTunes. Ping is a cross-between Facebook and Twitter, giving over 160 million iTunes users the ability to build networks of friends and musicians, and read comments by other fans. Sophos researchers have found that Ping is being over-run by scams and spam messages. It's ironic that the most common scams on Ping right now revolve around Apple's own iPhone.
