Spam Warning: don't click on WWIII emails

I'll be mostly on Radio Silence this weekend while I try and catch my breath from very long work days and nights; in the meantime be aware of some nasty attempts to infiltrate your computer:
WORLD WAR III announced by spam: "Hackers are deluging web users with malware-laden spam claiming that World War III has started following a US invasion of Iran. Security experts warned [yesterday] that spam emails with subject lines including 'Third World War has begun,' '20000 US Soldiers in Iran,' and 'US Army crossed Iran's borders' have been intercepted. The emails contain links to a malicious webpage that displays what appears to be a video player showing the mushroom cloud of a nuclear explosion."
