Islamic Extremists Changing Targets- Sights Now Set on Porn Watchers
Yes you read that correctly. This story is actually about a month old I just haven't had a chance to write about it.
The Yusafali-a Trojan tracks windows users web viewing habits and when it detects you surfing on a pornographic website (which it detects by looking for words such as "penis", "sex" and "teen" in the title bar of the browser) it springs into action. With lightning fast speed Yusafali minimizes your browser and begin preaching to you by quoting the Koran.
"Yusufali: Know, therefore, that there is no god but Allah, and ask forgiveness for they fault, and for the men and women who believe: for Allah knows how ye move about and how ye dwell in your homes."
If the user continues to stay on the site, a button pops up that says "For Exit Click Here". As soon as the mouse is moved the box changes to have vertical bars and the text 'OH! NO i'm in the Cage'.

All in all this isn't such a damaging virus. It could only really cause any serious damage by blocking medical sites. It is however quite funny. If suicide bombings and other physical attacks are going to stop and instead we will simply be reprimanded when we look at porn, maybe peace is on the way.
