Online scammers use Gadhafi's death to lure victims

Online scammers are using the death of Moammar Gadhafi to try to lure victims.

Computer security company McAfee is warning of two specific email dangers.

One is an email claiming to show pictures of Gadhafi's body. It contains a file that is actually a malware virus that can infect your computer.

The other is a "spam scam," where you're asked to send money to help collect on some of Gadhafi's fortune.

Gadhafi was killed Thursday in Libya, two months after he was driven from power and forced into hiding.
