Pirates of the Caribbean Fans Beware!

In anticipation of the movies premiere, an email has been circulating around the web promising a teaser trailer of the third installment of the movie franchise “World’s End” and a chance to win free tickets. However, this email isn’t treasure but a trojan designed to do nasty things to your system…

“There is no film preview and there are no free tickets,” said Graham Cluley, senior technology consultant for Sophos. “The only thing that this email is trailing is an attack wave of malicious code against your PC. Once your computer is compromised, hackers will be able to steal information from you with the aim of identity theft and other crimes.”

The email has gone out to North American and European fans and bears the familiar logo of the movie. We advise that you don’t take the bait.
