Say No to Barack Obama in Your Inbox


Barack Obama may have bashed the world with the Democratic presidential candidate's historic election victory Tuesday, but the millions of computer users are under threat from an Obama Virus, network security companies say.

Developers of the Virus are expecting huge benefit from the US President-elect Barack Obama with a bunch of Spam Messages to offer news of his Victory. The message contains a link which points to a video of Obama's acceptance speech. It in fact, redirects to a website which downloads a spy program automatically. Spy programs steals sensitive information from a user's computer.

The information then can be used to access online accounts, steal identity and falsify credit card transaction. The virus also converts a user's computer into Botnet. Botnet is a network of computers programmed to perpetuate spam campaigns.

'The hackers are taking advantage of Obama-mania,' said Graham Cluley, senior technology consultant for SophosLabs.

'So many people have been excited or interested in (the election), that they might be susceptible to it. We hope people are beginning to learn not to click on these things.'
