    After Ron Paul, spam writers are now campaigning for Hilary Clinton. The spammed emails inform readers of the presidentiable’s visit to the state of Virginia, and entice users to download a video of the event.

    However, clicking on the link shows no video, but rather downloads a malware possessing the capability to turn a system into a lean mean spam-spewing machine, which, ironically, is just the perfect tool to gain popularity among the voting population — though obviously in bad tastes. Reaching out to people is a spammer’s high priority as well.

    As the election heats up, so does spam.
