Security researchers from McAfee have issued an urgent alert regarding an email circulating with the subject "Nude Britney Spears Photos".
The email contains a URL which does not link to any malicious website or virus as would be expected by the message title, but instead links directly to naked pictures uploaded by the over-exposed, self-publicising pop tart.
When a user chooses to manually follow the hyperlink, they will be prompted to download or view the photos. Users may require to wash their eyes out with soapy water to remove all traces of the images from their system.
Emergency McAfee DAT files to deal with this threat will be released later today.
