Perfect use for a Trojan

Computerworld - New Trojan swaps porn for Koran:
"A new Trojan horse program circulating around the internet this week appears to be on a moral mission to stamp out adult websites, according to security research firm Sophos.

Instead of snooping for sensitive financial information or secretly taking control of an infected computer, the Trojan, called Yusufali-A, monitors web surfing habits. When it spots an objectionable term such as 'sex' or 'exhibition,' in the browser's title bar, it hides the website and instead pops up a message taken from the Koran, said Gregg Mastoras, a senior security analyst with Sophos."
