A new type of malware infects PCs using file-share sites and publishes the user's net history on a public website before demanding a fee for its removal.

The Japanese trojan virus installs itself on computers using a popular file-share service called Winni, used by up to 200m people.

It targets those downloading illegal copies of games in the Hentai genre, an explicit form of anime.

Website Yomiuri claims that 5500 people have so far admitted to being infected.

Oh that'll stop fast.............they'll try it on the wrong guy who will pay whatever to make sure the people responsible are found dismembered in some alley in Japan. Write it down..............

My computer must have this porn virus thing. It's had an ugly smelly discharge for about a week now and it screams if I hit control, alt and delete at the same time. I guess there's no such thing as "safe surfing" anymore.

How can such organized crime survive?

I mean I understand how these miscreants can hid on the net, and not get caught.

But SOMEBODY has to collect the money, right?

Obviously that's the nexus the authorities ought to be able to capture them.
