Jackson Virus and Spam Attack The Internet

What the relationship between Michael Jackson and technology? Yes.. it's about there is Jackson virus and Spam that spread the cyber world. Security researchers warned Thursday of the increasing levels of viruses and spam using Jackson’s name to snare unsuspecting users.
One e-mail carries the subject line “Remembering Michael Jackson” was circulating with a worm in tow. The e-mail has a zip file attached that infects victims if downloaded.

“The e-mail, which claims to come from, says that the attached ZIP file contains secret songs and photos of Michael Jackson,” Graham Cluley, senior technology consultant at Sophos, wrote on a blog. “However, the reality is that opening the attachment exposes you to infection - and if your computer is hit you

will be spreading the worm onto other Internet users.”

Cluley said that the malware also spreads via USB memory sticks. Another e-mail promises an exclusive look at a YouTube video of the “last work of Michael Jackson,” but instead installs a malicious program that steals passwords.
