Halloween Spam Warning

Make Money Online - Spam Warning for Halloween


Take care this Halloween there is more spam going round. Internet security firm Marshal is warning that a malicious Halloween spam e-mail is doing the rounds.

Marshal says the spam invites you to visit a Web site and download a “dancing skeleton” – but of course what you really get is a trojan named “halloween.exe”. A copy of the Storm Trojan which will compromise your PC and merge it into a botnet – a network of PCs that can be controlled remotely by a server.

The messages arrive with the following subject lines :
 For people with a sense of humor only
 Halloween Fun
 Happy Halloween
 If your in your office, keep the speakers low, lol
 Nothing is funnier this Halloween
 Party on this Halloween
 The most amazing dancing skeleton
 This will make you laugh
 You'll laugh your but off [sic]

So, spammers still can't spell despite being able to write programs. So if you get one don't open it and don't visit the website.
