    "Jackson suicide" virus invades the Internet

    A British anti-virus firm announced Friday hackers are breaking into computers by sending emails claiming Michael Jackson has tried to kill himself. According to security software specialists at Sophos, the email contains the subject heading, "Re: Suicidal attempt." When opened, the body specifies, " "Last night, while in his Neverland Ranch, Michael Jackson has made a suicidal attempt."
    So what's next ... Elvis IS alive ... and still people open these mails and get infected.

    Just a heads up for you guys ... any Jackson fans

    Typical "Click here and see <insert_something_worth_seeing_here> photos/videos/news" ...

    M.Jackson's name was already used in a lure like this (last octobre if i recall) but the trojan downloaded was a diferent one. This one dloads the Troj/Borobt-Gen trojan.

    Another Ruindows-only problem

    Thanks for the heads up, Cemetric. One of my theories was that after the trial (or before) if Jackson was found guilty he'd kill himself. Oh well... *sigh*

    Thats what I thought too. Which kinda makes anyone who knows anything about online lures seem foolish. Why would anyone especially multimillionaire Michael Jackson kill or try to kill himself after he has just been cleared on ten charges of child molestation?

    I'm sure this trojan was out before the reading of the verdict and I guess its just still floating around.

    My guess aswell.. this is probably about a month or so old.

    I thought that Jacko was in the hole to the tune of $250 MILLION.

    He spends it, but he's not been earning anything like it for years......................
    The trial could pave the way for a new audience, in that America is used to him, and Eastern Europe is being peddled as the next tour / album release ????

    foxlox,

    I heard his publicist had said that after this trial, he needed to get back in the recording studio. I guess if he keeps busy, he will stay out of trouble.

    i got this email with the headline "rapist gets away on victims bike"

    It was michael being chased by the police on a tricycle. I cant find it, but if any one can google it, its hilarious!

    Micheal owns the rights to all of The Beatles' songs, so he's still making $$$ off that.
