Why do I say that bin Laden's death is bad for PC users? Because it's going to unleash tons of viruses, worms, keyloggers, trojans, crapware and other vile forms of malware not to mention an ocean of spam. Even if you are a savvy computer user it's still going to effect you because it's going to adversely effect the Internet. Sometimes we forget but we're all networked together. There's only one Internet and all of us are networked to it. You've got your home network, your network at work and then there's The Network and when The Network gets temporarily (we hope temporarily) polluted by unsavvy users falling prey to unsavory black-hat scammers, we're all going to smell the stink for awhile.
It never fails to happen that when a mega news story hits, the internet bad guys start blackhat SEO (Search Engine Optimization) campaigns to lure naïve internet users onto their sites so that they can infect those users machines with all sorts of nasty malware. This week's sensational news on the death of Osama bin Laden is arguably the largest news stories since the 9 -11 terrorist attacks. According to The Daily Mail search terms like osoma bin laden dead, Al Qaeda, Navy Seals and Obama Address are among the search engine search terms being the most heavily targeted.
