Many computer users are aware of the dangers of malware and viruses that can steal your identity and cause all kinds of problems, but now pedophiles are reportedly using malware that can make you an unsuspecting pedophile.
A computer virus can steal more than your identity. It can also steal your reputation and frame you by depositing heinous pictures and videos on your computer that can be remotely exploited by pedophiles and make it appear that you surf illegal Web sites.
You might not be aware that your computer has been compromised until the police come knocking on your door. It can end up costing you hundreds of thousands of dollars to prove your innocence.
The Associated Press investigated cases affecting innocent people that were branded as pedophiles after a co-worker or loved one came across child porn that was placed on a PC through a virus.
