Malicious web sites exploit assassination.

Forcepoint : 02 January, 2008  (Technical Article)
Websense discovers virus bearing web sites that exploit the news of the assissination of Benazir Bhutto.
Websense Security Labs has discovered malicious Web sites attempting to capitalise on the breaking news of the assassination of Benazir Bhutto. These sites attempt to infect users seeking more information about the event. This activity is similar to past news events, where attackers used malicious sites containing information about the event to infect visitors.

In this case, the first infected site found by Websense Security Labs was the second result in a Google search using a generic and simple keyword. Therefore, the site likely to receive large amounts of traffic. Clicking on the link in the search results did not trigger a warning from Google that the site may be malicious.
