Beware Of Bin Laden MalWare

With the biggest news story in the last several years, the death of Osama Bin Laden has presented a new opportunity for malware creators to take advantage of our morbid curiosity. It has been reported that some sights are putting up pictures purportedly of the deceased Osama Bin Laden that then ask viewers to update software on their computers that turns out to be such things as the adware program known as hotbar.

The best advice is that when a picture or pictures are actually released or even leaked, that major credible news sources will have them and the links to them.  Once again, be sure you have a good antivirus product that is up to date to help keep your computer clean and free of most malware.
