WASHINGTON  -- The FBI is warning computer users against
unsolicited emails purporting to show photos or videos of the
killing of Osama bin Laden.
  
The bureau says they may contain a virus that can steal personal
identification information or infect a computer. In a statement
Tuesday, the bureau cautioned that such malicious software can even
be passed along unknowingly by a friend or family member.
  
The FBI urged the public to adjust privacy settings on social
networking sites to make it more difficult for people to post
material.
