Spyware Alert : Obama stars in sex video?

By on

Remember when people said that don’t believe everything on the Internet? No? Well, you should start listening, especially since Barack Obama is not a terrorist … or a porn star.

A malicious e-mail is spreading that claims to have a link to an Obama sex video. However, this contains spyware which steals sensitive data from the computer, according to Sophos on Wednesday. The subject line would say "Obama sex video!!!" with the e-mail coming from infonews@obama.com.

The link contains an executable file that plays an amateur porn video, but Obama is not present in the video. The trojan is known as Mal/Hupig-D, and this targets Windows machines and steal passwords and bank data.

Thanks for coming onboard!
We're excited to have you.
