Bhutto Will Kill Your Computer

Well that certainly didn’t take long, there’s already malware in the wild exploiting Bhutto’s assassination apparently which is pretty damn fast work for malware, at some point some particularly evily bright chap will just link his engine of computer death to Google News and churn out polluted videos and websites for any top story. Nude pictures of Rachel Nichols surface? 2 seconds later there’s a hundred sites offering video, stories and pictures complete with keyloggers and trojans. Mubarak sits on a tack? Get your Mubarak sitting on a tack videos and news stories complete with trojans? The King of Thailand has smelly feet? Yup you got it. It’s a fast media world and the bad guys work even faster. Of course Benazir Bhutto’s death is in a rather different category than the usual exploits focusing on naked pictures of Paris Hilton or Britney Spears, but it just demonstrates that the baddies adapt.
