Fake CNN Alerts Spread Malware Via Fake Flash

Are CNN Alerts showing up in your mailbox lately?  Unless you actually signed up for Alerts, they are fake and clicking on a link to a story will install malware on your machine.  You may see a message that asks you to install an updated Flash client.  Don't do it.  That client is a fake as well.  Details are in PC World, and Information Week.
