Cybercriminals aim to tempt computer users with malware hidden in a dancing skeleton, warns security supplier Sophos.

The trojan horse will be hidden in messages with the following links: Happy Halloween and Dancing Bones, The Most Amazing Dancing Skeleton, Show This to the Kids, Send This to Your Friends, and Man This Rocks.

This is just the latest incarnation of the e-card campaign, also known as Storm, said Graham Cluley, senior technology consultant for Sophos. Already the most pervasive malware in the world, even more users might be seduced by the catchy Vengaboys soundtrack.
