False claims that presidential candidate Barack Obama is a sex tourist are being used to trick users into getting infected by malware. Prospective marks are encouraged to check out a video implausibly showing the married Democrat in action with a Ukrainian strumpet. Gullible folks who fall for the ruse are shown a bongo clip …
Yes I have been waiting ages to use that...
Monica == Reggie Perrin's mother-in-law
"Curiously, the Monica Lewinsky sex scandal never became the topic of a malware attack"
Presumably for the same reason as the non-existent Curry/Major sex tapes. Dare one say that no attractive women (-ish, or at least moreso than a hippo) were involved?
it's not John McCain, OMG, I need a shower now even thinking that, I feel so dirty.
Exploit tagetting political conservatives?
An interesting idea. With a little research, I'm sure that it would be possible to target those with a given political orientation.
Would you be more or less likely to connect to a URL advertising negative information about your candidate?
Would you be more or less likely to connect to a URL advertising negative information about your candidate's opposition?
Political nastiness could reach a new level of... nastiness.
Why is This News?
There's been six dozen variants on this in my spamcatcher for weeks.
My favorite is the one where he's boffing Cindy McCain.
You have to be dim
Or even stupid to open any of these spurious news flashes. I get them all the time on MSN live and yahoo but both accounts automatically class these as spam. Even if they didn't, the same old thing applies, if you don't know the sender don't open it.
Frankly, anyone who is sad enough to want to see Obama getting his rocks off on screen deserves all they get.
Republicans will do anything ...
to discredit their opposition.
How do you show something implausibly?
Inquiring minds want to know!
it has to beat getting rick rolled
Oy, wash yer mouth out! Agreed that Monica was a bit of a dog but Edwina.... phwoar! Well, I would've...
Gawd knows what she saw in Major, who was a sort of Antichrist of Sex.
Anyway, as Chris G says above, anyone stupid enough to follow celeb-sex links deserves to have their bank account emptied.
Mine's the dirty mac with the stain at thigh level
Has sex tapes of bill and Hillary. Just click here www.sucker.com
Chris G and Sceptical Bastard...
are quite right: anyone who gets caught by this deserves everything they get - which should also include their name, email address, telephone number and any images from their web cam being harvested and submitted to a "Top Internet Fucktards" site so we can identify these morons and amuse ourselves by emailing/calling them and saying "BWAhahahahahahaha, wot a fuckwit!"
Sadly, malware these days seems focussed largely on making the affected machine into a slave of the baddies so it actually is a bad thing for the rest of us when morons get themselves infected.
I yearn for the good old days when the malware actually deleted stuff off the hard-drive or fucked up the computer in some way (reformatted drives, flashed BIOS etc) - no skin off my nose if some dumb bunny loses their life's work because they wanted to watch Obama gettin' it on...
"with the stain at thigh level"
Ah, I see your account has been emptied then.
Funniest ones I saw...
..was a recent spate hitting my inbox with titles like "Britney Spears does not flash her underwear today".
Talk about truth in spamvertising. ^_^
I misread that
as "erection-related campaign..."
Seems more fitting.
Re: You have to be dim
MSN Live blocked something?
One Tory commented
That when he saw Edwina Currie brandishing a pair of handcuffs at a Party Conference
"He felt a batsqueak of desire"
Her politics may be detestable but she had a certain something I suppose
That's what happens when Focus on the Family
loses focus. I hope lots of pious asshats and goony hockey players clicked on it. Goes without saying, they use Windows, too.
Bird barf. I can't believe they are allowed to vote.
So these guys deserve a medal or two as all the dumb insular stupid rednecks fall for that one hook line and sinker , as these self effacing idiot get what they deserve and deserve what they get , let these fools get burned .
As a certain socialite would say "Ha! Ha! , got you again fool !"
