RE: After Death Photo of Osama Bin Laden

Photo of the Dead Osama Bin Laden-Fiction! and Possible Virus!

A Photo of terrorist Osama Bin Laden allegedly taken by members of the Navy Seal Team 6 moments after his death is now circulating on the Internet.

This photo is a digital manipulation of a photo taken years ago of the Al Queda leader and could possibly be infected with malware.

This serves as a reminder to all of us to make sure that virus protection software is up to date and to never open email attachments from people that we do not know.

In a related post, F-Secure 10 hours ago at the time of this writing, posted Bin Laden Video Is a Virus, FBI Warns which I and other security people have said was a possibility. Even Steve Gibson of of Gibson Research Corp talks about the reminder of the fact we should not open links from people we don’t know, or suspicious things that look too good to be true (i.e. the dead photos of Bin Ladin.) We just want to pass this along to the readers of the blog.
