Angelina Jolie is the bait in spam emails

My junk mailbox includes a number of interesting offers and a newly popular one tries to entice me to see pictures and videos of actress Angelina Jolie in various states of undress. The URL in the spam email is linked to an executable file which IT security firm BitDefender has identified as Trojan malware.

A ScanSafe study released a few days ago indicated malware attacks increased 278% in the first half of 2008. Cybercriminals are getting creative, often using popular celebrities as bait, so resist the urge to click and pay attention to the WOT icons next to those links.
