Not a big surprise at all… a spam run distributing malware, referring to Obama's election as the new U.S. President, started this morning (U.S. time).

The link points to a website that looks as if it contains a video, and to view it the user has to download a "new" flash player, adobe_flash9.exe (MD5 47c86509a78dc1edb42f2964bea86306).
