FBI Warns: Beware of Malicious Software Claiming to Show Osama bin Laden Photos or Videos se

Osama bin Laden

WASHINGTON — Osama bin Laden may be gone, but a computer virus associated with the al Qaeda leader is making the rounds.

The FBI on Tuesday warned “computer users to exercise caution when they receive e-mails that purport to show photos or videos of Usama bin Laden’s recent death.”

“This content could be a virus that could damage your computer,” the FBI said. “This malicious software, or ‘malware,’ can embed itself in computers and spread to users’ contact lists, thereby infecting the systems of associates, friends, and family members. These viruses are often programmed to steal your personally identifiable information.”

The Internet Crime Complaint Center issued a warning not to open unsolicited (spam) e-mails, including clicking links contained within those messages.

“Even if the sender is familiar, the public should exercise due diligence. Computer owners must ensure they have up-to-date firewall and anti-virus software running on their machines to detect and deflect malicious software,” the FBI said.
