Hackers Use Bin Laden Link to Spread Viruses

Ad Feedback

Fake links claiming to take Internet users to photos and videos of Osama bin Laden's body are spreading throughout cyber space -- and many of them carry destructive computer viruses.

The viruses are primarily being posted on social networking sites like Facebook.

Computer experts warn users not click on or open any photo or video claiming to show bid Laden's body.

"Most of these are phishing schemes designed to get your personal information, grab and install viruses on your computer to grab your credit card information so they can steal money from your account," explained Don Jamison of CBN Information Technology.

In general, it's good practice to refrain from clicking or opening any link from an unknown source.
