Trojans tempt users with alleged images of Bin Laden's death
Every major event attracts the attention of internet users who, attempting to find the latest information, become careless and click on anything that appears before them. At the moment, criminals are trying to surf the "Bin Laden is dead" wave, sending out emails advertising images alleged to be of the related military action. F-Secure has already observed the first malware samples of this kind that install an online banking trojan once a computer has become infected.
On its web pages, the FBI has also warned users about emails with images or videos alleged to be of Bin Laden's recent death and recommended exercising extra caution when opening emails.
