Malicious Code / Malicious Website: Information stealing code disguised as "videos"
February 20, 2008
Websense Security LabsTM has discovered a run of spam emails that attempt to dupe users into downloading and installing a video of the solar eclipse. We have also seen similar blocks of spam purporting to contain videos of movie stars, singers, and other entertainers.
Sample subject lines include:
Lunar Eclipse Video
Your guide to the total lunar eclipse.
Shocking video with Total moon eclipse
Total Moon Eclipse Video on NASA TV
Moon Eclipse is visible today
If users access any of the various Web sites hosting the malicious code, and attempt to view the video, they are infected with an information-stealing Trojan Horse. There is no exploit code hosted on the sites. Users are prompted to confirm that they want to run the code.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
