How would you like to be in this situation? You get infected by a cybercriminal's illegal bot (Ozdok/Mega-D in this case) which takes a screen shot that shows you searching for illegal underage porn; then, security researchers get hold of some screen shots from the bot's command and control (C&C) server; while going through the shots, the researchers come across those of your screen and notify the authorities (presumably, the FBI). Busted. By a criminal bot. Bummer.

The rest of the story is posted at [url=http://itknowledgeexchange.techtarget.com/security-corner/victim-of-cybercrime-found-searching-for-illegal-porn/:anw0h9e2]Security Corner[/url:anw0h9e2].

Are you sure that child pornography is the example that you want to use? That's not something that I would need to avoid, nor would I warn others about it - especially not with my picture right beside my post. It just, um, looks a little funny, if you get my drift.
