I heard about a small thing going around about Bin Laden hanging himself
and some CNN reporters had pictures. But it was a virus. I didn’t hear
much about it, maybe it is a small time thing and they are just picking
people to spread the virus around.
Was posted to many newsgroups during the past two weeks.
Subject: Osama Found Hanged
Osama Bin Ladin was found hanged by two CNN journalists early Wedensday
evening. As evidence they took several photos, some of which i have
included here. As yet, this information has not hit the headlines due
to Bush wanting confirmation of his identity but the journalists have
released some early photos over the internet..
The URL points to a zip fil that contains a small backdoor/trojan in the
I've seen that with both bin-laden and arnie, containing a link to a
website hosting the executable with the virus.
Yes, it has also been posted as Brittney nude and stuff like that.
The Arnie thing can be found on Sophos website:
Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
