Today’s news that Bin Laden has been killed in a military raid will likely result in an uptick of malware spam in May. Previously, false stories announcing Bin Laden’s death were very effective virus/Trojan delivery vehicles infecting those eager to see details of such an event.

Now that it is true and at the lead of the news cycle, such stories and bogus links will likely see a resurgence. And as a result, it will be that much more difficult to discern the proper from the illegitimate. Everyone should take care when receiving such emails, and to only click through if the source is verified and trusted.
