sTORm preying on file sharers

This came in at 7:02am this morning after about two days of nothing new from Storm. Now they are promoting Tor for file sharers to protect themselves from "Big Brother." Tor anonymizes online activity by encrypting and tunneling network traffic through random Tor exit nodes all around the world. It is nice to see Tor getting some recognition, but hopefully, it won't lead to too many new infections.

Here's a copy of the e-mail and a screenshot of the page.

Subject: Big brother is watching you.
Body: Do you trade files online? Then they will come after you. The news is full of articles of lawsuits by the RIAA. This program protects your online identity. Save yourself from an attack and use this free software now. Download Tor
