Michael Jackson 'suicide' can kill your PC!

Pop king Michael Jackson fans beware. Any message on your computer monitor that says that Michael Jackson has made a suicidal attempt will surely crash your computer.

According to eonline, the latest virus doing the rounds is "The "News from Neverland Ranch" displaying information about a "suicidal attempt" by Michael Jackson.

When the user clicks on the "Read more" button to find out more details, the computer hangs.

The "News from Neverland Ranch" dispatch--also known by the subject line, "Re: Suicidal aattempt [sic]" which goes somewhat like "Last night, while in his Neverland Ranch, Michael Jackson has made a suicidal attempt. This attempt follows the last claim was made against the king of pop. 46 years old Michael has left pre-suicid [sic] note which describes and interpretes [sic] some of his sins," has been making rounds since Thursday.

Computer security analysts however, say that this virus will last only as long as hackers don't find another one to hog the limelight, adding that Jackson virus is doing the round because

Jackson is in the limelight now.

"If I counted the number of times Osama bin Laden has been found alive, I'd run out of fingers. No matter what the emails say, though, the al Qaeda leader has not been captured. And Michael

Jackson, by all accounts, has not been felled by a "suicidal attempt. This is probably getting attention right now because they're exploiting Michael Jackson," eonline quoted Steven.
