Computer programmers and hackers are already taking advantage of the twin bombings during the Boston Marathon, sending out fake emails that lure unsuspecting users to open the file.
According to the anti-virus company Sophos, at least three of the latest malware attacks include fake opinion pieces with the subject lines:
- Opinion: FBI knew about bombs 3 days before Boston Marathon – Why and Who Benefits?
- Opinion: Boston Marathon Explosions – FBI Benefits?
- Explosion at Boston Marathon
The emails contains a link to a video that, when opened, attempts to infect your computer.
