Still malicious, just not towards children

Just when everyone thought they couldn't take much more of the news concerning Michael Jackson's death and the lawsuits following his demise, more bad news concerning the pop star has come along.


Even In Death, Michael Jackson Still Haunts Many


Michael Jackson has expanded his trickery, touching computers inappropriately with spam and malware. Sophos says that there is an email floating around claiming to contain details on secret Jackson songs, infecting computers with a worm that spreads to the user's email contacts.


There is another email making the rounds that links to a YouTube video of the "last work of Michael Jackson." Instead of the video you expect, users are being infected with malicious content that steals passwords. There is also another email that supposedly contains a link to some unpublished photos of the King of Pop, yet they are also given a password stealing piece of malware instead.
