Baba worm pretends to purge porn. A mass-mailing worm has been found that tries to spread by fooling users into believing that they have pornographic content on their PCs.The Baba-C worm travels by e-mail and includes the words "Windows Evidence Checker has found XXX material on your computer," Sophos said in an advisory on Tuesday. The e-mail claims that people can clear their PCs of this material by running a program called "Evidence Cleaner" attached to the message, but does not actually look for porn. When activated, this program runs malicious code that allows hackers access to the data on the computer.
The only easy day was yesterday.
