Osama Bin Laden’s malicious video
06. May 2011
The death of Osama bin Laden has gotten so much popularity that some people are starting to take undue advantage of this fact. The Osama’s death video and picture was revealed to be a HOAX as the CIA officials claim that they have not produced any photographic or video evidence regarding his death. This still keeps thousands of people undaunted as they continue to frantically search online for the complete video of his death. Because of this the hackers have now released a malicious code on facebook.com that promises the viewers the ‘real’ video regarding his death.
The virus is known as the Osama bin laden’s death virus and is spreading rapidly through out the internet via facebook. According to some sources, in order to view this video, they will be given the malicious program in the form of the video link which can only be activated when they post it on the wall of at least 5 to 6 friends. This means that when they try to paste the code on their friend’s walls, they have to allow full permission for the software code to access their facebook profile, and depending upon the privacy settings, the hackers can access anything from the contact number to bank account number. This apparently even has an email spin off which is a chain of links leading to ‘exclusive’ video coverage of Bin laden’s death but they are also nothing but viruses who show nothing to the viewers except a virus detection alert.
It is understandable that the amount of people who will want to watch the video will be very large for a number of personal or political reasons, but we should realize that we are compromising our computer and all our personal information for a malicious video which is not even real as it is officially declared to be a malicious hoax because as mentioned above, the CIA agents said that no video pr photographic evidence was taken in the time of his death period. For those of you who have already fallen for this trap, please remember that there is no point in crying over spilled milk and start doing something about it right now.(rockefellernews/yk)
