Report: Obama Sex Video Spam Hides Malware

A spam email from [email protected] proclaiming "Barack Obama sex story with girl" in its subject line could carry malicious malware to the curious clicker.

Researchers cautioned this week that it's not a good idea to click on the email's short porn video alleging to display the Illinois Democratic senator sexually engaged with Ukrainian girls, security laboratory Websense reported.

Those unfortunate enough to click on the 14-second porn clip are not only treated to a snippet with a performer that is clearly not the presidential candidate, but malware applications which are installed onto the victim's computer, researchers added.

After the information-stealing Trojan application is installed, users' data is posted to a compromised Finnish travel site hxxp://*snip*, Websense said.
