Whitney Houston The bereavement of pop superstar Whitney Houston made headline around the world this weekend, and it didn’t get long for fraudsters and cybercriminal to money in on the singer’s death.
For example, messages have been seen public on Face book claim to link to a video of Whitney Houston’s autopsy. According to the post, the video of Whitney Houston’s autopsy “reveals a shocking secret that explain her death”.
Here’s what a typical message looks like:

Breaking information: Coroner’s autopsy reports reveals a dim past and secret life which sadly led to Whitney Houstons death. Clicking on the link will take your browser which appears to show a YouTube video embedded on what looks like a Face book webpage. Though, a message on the sheet says that the video cannot be played as your version of Adobe Flash needs to be updated.
Of course, you be supposed to only still download an update for your fitting of Flash from the *real* Adobe website, so my advice would be very wary about downloading any software that this bogus webpage might serve up to you, or any scam survey pages that it might straight you towards.
