It goes without saying that the death of Osama Bin Laden has already generated a whole bunch of scams, malware and other junk.
Here’s another one.
Taking a cue from the “Osama shot down” video doing the rounds on Facebook are group pages pushing much the same thing. Example:
It’s the old “paste this code into your browser” wheeze, although you’d think some of the 4,000+ people who “Liked” this would notice the code includes the word “Owned”.
Here’s the code:
“Please wait 1-2 minutes without leaving the page until we process your picture”.
Call it a hunch, but I think we’re likely to see a survey pop up and see some spam posted to your Facebook profile.
Well, there’s a shocker.
Please tell your friends not to fall for these scams (and you might want to let them know that pasting random code into their browser isn’t a great idea either).
