Osama Bin Laden 'death Film' Goes Viral.

Quote:
Online spammers using fake videos and photos of Osama Bin Laden's death have seen their phishing scam go viral.

Since the al-Qaeda leader was shot and killed by American special forces there's been speculation about exactly how he died.

This has meant the scam has quickly spread around the world, often through email and Facebook accounts.

In America the FBI has already warned internet users about the dangers of these scams.

Agents says viruses which are downloaded are often programmed to steal personal information like email addresses, passwords and dates of birth.

'Identity Theft'

In a different type of scam people are also being tricked into handing over their personal details.

Another, known as clickjacking, works when people click on a fake video link and unwittingly give spammers access to their accounts.

Rik Ferguson is director of security research at Trend Micro and told Newsbeat: "The ultimate outcome for a victim is certainly going to be identity theft.

"That can have serious financial implications short term, longer term if your identity is sold on then it could affect your credit rating."

It's not the first time news events have given hackers the opportunity to spread malware attacks around the world.

Similar campaigns were launched to coincide with the Royal Wedding, the World Cup and Japanese Tsunami.

Ferguson added: "The fact that this is related to Osama Bin Laden is almost academic.

"Whenever anything newsworthy happens, anything at all, that is taken advantage of by criminals in order to make their attack more interesting, more credible."

Re: Osama Bin Laden 'death Film' Goes Viral.

By this time, they should all know that there is NO video/photo being released by the US, and if someone, somewhere was able to upload a true, original photo/vid, it would be ALL OVER credible sources across the WORLD within hours. I'm not suprised that some people click links to vids with the URL http://www.freeiphone4with3milliondollarscredit.com I think it's quite funny!

DON'T CLICK THE LINK!!
I just made it up, no idea if it'll take ya somewhere.

Yep! Fucking hypocrites. I love talking people who aren't gore friendly to watching that mexican drug cartel decapitation. The one where it takes him a good 5 or 6 minutes to die and they can't even chop through his spinal cord. I did that in my criminal justice class, freaked out most of my class!
