Just a quick note to readers in security roles that might be responsible for end-user actions: Tonight’s announcement that Osama Bin Laden has been killed will likely spawn a large number of malware purporting to be videos or pictures of the body or operation. You may want to pre-empt this by reminding users of the dangers of clicking and running things from untrusted sources.

I think most of the readers of this blog are smart enough not to fall for this themselves (and might even seek it out for the malware samples!), and that a good percentage are in offensive security roles, but this could be a big problem for the readers in defensive roles. So, heads up!
