"Osama Bin Laden was found hanged by two CNN journalists early Wednesday 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." "Hackers and virus writers will try all kinds of tricks to entice people into downloading their malicious code," said Graham Cluley, senior technology consultant for Sophos.
While attempting to get these photos, the virus breaks free and computer hacker obtains access to the classified data. This Internet attack was timed to hackers' professional holiday. Fifteen years ago, a man was charged with creation and distribution of a network virus for the first time.
Robert Morris, an American student experimentally infected several PCs at the university. But the program went beyond control; in a result military and medical authorities in the USA suffered about $10mn - $100mn losses. The young programmer got off with three years of probation and a $10,000 fine.
