Sophos said a spam campaign has started which falsely claimed Michael Jackson had attempted suicide, but it's just a ruse to infect peoples' PCs.

According to Sophos, hundreds of the messages have been sent, with emails containing a link which if clicked installs trojan code onto PCs.

The crooks further compound the scam by showing a page saying the website is too busy, but behind the scenes a trojan download has begun.

The trojan in question is Troj/Borobt-Gen, said Sophos. It has more info on this trojan, here.
