"blockquote>Well we had 134 emails in our inbox this morning asking “was Liz Taylor murdered”? The answer to this pathetic question is Elizabeth “Liz” Taylor was not murdered is is alive and well.

We did some research on this to try and figure out why so many internet users were under the impression that she was in fact murdered. Unsurprised, I found that there is a massive spam email being sent out to probably hundreds of thousands of people, disguised as an MSNBC breaking news email claiming that Liz Taylor was Murdered Tuesday Evening. The emails are titled: BREAKING NEWS” followed by headline “Elizabeth Taylor found murdered at home”.

A very bad way of spamming. I hope they get in jail for this. Quite a few computers may be infected, anyone has heard of any figures?
