Bin Laden Malware
May 2, 2011
With the death of Osama Bin Laden it goes without saying that the hackers and scammers will be busy at work creating a feast of traps for unsuspecting people to eat upon.
Usually, this type of media activity spawns a whole load of Malware designed specifically to steal your data and personal details so beware.
What to look out for
Although we’ve not witnessed any such releases I’d watch out for:
- Watch Bin Laden last minutes as he get shot
- See Bin Laden dropped into the ocean
- Pictures of dead Bin Laden released
There’s already a healthy number of searches on Google for “Bin Laden Body”.
I suspect that social media sites will be the prime target, as is customary, followed by good old fashion Black Hat SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) and dodgy websites.
