Emsi Software, provider of the a-squared Anti-Malware 4.0 protection software, warns of a new type of virus attack that, up to now, has only been used in the USA. In this case, after returning from shopping, drivers find a parking ticket on their windscreen. The drivers are then supposed to fetch the details of the illegal parking, and the penalties incurred, from a particular website. Drivers who actually follow the printed link are then promptly attacked and receive new Malware on their PCs.
