Criminals using Obama speech to commit fraud

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Computer users are being warned to steer clear of fraudulent e-mails that claim to link to video of President-elect Barack Obama's acceptance speech.

The warning was issued Thursday by cyber experts at the University of Alabama-Birmingham.

The computer program will cause all user IDs and passwords to be sent to the criminal's computer address in the Ukraine.

Gary Warner, director of computer forensics research, said additional information can be found at CyberCrime & Doing Time.
