A run of Halloween spam has been spotted inviting recipients to visit a website and download a "dancing skeleton" - a program that purports to create a novelty dancing skeleton on your desktop.

By visiting the site, users expose themselves to vulnerability exploits and an executable file named "halloween.exe," which is in reality a copy of the Storm Trojan.
When schemes require you to download blatant .exe programs, you get the feeling that hackers are not really trying hard enough, and might be better off hiring witches to curse spam before sending it off.
