So waiit a minute, there really is nude footage of her?

So that warrants two obvious questions.

{In case your obvious machine is broken}:

Where can I see the real footage they are trying to keep from the public?

(e.g. is the video in the virus really her?)

And does Erin Andrews look good enough to risk getting a virus?

Market share

It's the focus of attack because the subject matter has the majority share of the market. Switch your interest to porn with fewer adherents, like smoking fetish or chastity belts, and you will encounter fewer (if any) viruses. Yes, these genres are still theoretically vulnerable to attack, but the black hats can't be bothered with the much smaller pool of potential victims. And use Linux (fnargh, fnargh!).

Bizzarely it is avaiable on usenet malware free - I have no idea how they will be able to enforce its removal from there.

But it could be fun watching them try.

Paris because... oh c'mon nudity, virus alerts and hysterical lawyers - what other choice did I have?

Video of malware blocked by YouTube

For reasons best known to YouTube they've deemed the video of the malware attack "inappropriate content".

If you want to watch what the malware does, you can check it out at http://vimeo.com/5662308
