BEWARE: Osama Bin Laden Malware Reincarnates

Malware riffing Osama Bin Laden's death continues to proliferate -- as soon as Facebook stomps one out, another materializes. Don't click on any of them.

Malware based on Osama Bin Laden’s death continues to proliferate. As soon as Facebook stomps one out, another materializes.

Yesterday’s scamware offered photos of the corpse and today’s campaigns are promising videos promises to of the arch-terrorist’s execution.

Click on any such promise, you see none of the photos or videos, but and instead spam all of your friends’ walls while malware downloads onto your machine.

Pretty please don’t click on it. Report it, delete all signs of it from your wall, remove it from you account and if necessary, post a status update apologizing to any recipients of spam.

Assume anything offering photos or videos of Bin Laden’s corpse or execution is malware, and tell your friends the same, so you don’t fall prey to the latest trend in scamware.

Meanwhile, if you’re looking for shareable Bin Laden content that has no malware, check out the humorous video we’ve embedded at the bottom of this post.

Readers, have you seen any Bin Laden malware in your friends’ news feeds? When was the last time you reported a security problem to Facebook?
