GOING VIRAL

E-Scammers Prey on Twilight Fans

Looking for another reason to avoid the new Twilight movie? E! Online points out that ever-resourceful scammers and hackers are using the unbelievably popular vampire movie and book series to lure unsuspecting users. Clicking on links to sites claiming to have interviews with series author Stephenie Meyer—despite the fact that the writer's only publicity for the movie was one episode of Oprah—can earn the unwary Team Edward member a hard drive full of viruses and spyware. Other sites claiming to feature the "full movie" are similarly rigged: downloading the "required" movie player loads up a computer with malware. Twilight fans should take a page from Bella's book and be careful with their (computers') purity—it's not like it's hard to find legit Twilight coverage.
