Beware of this new threat
MAJOR VIRI going around <--- I confirmed it check the link I sent

HELSINKI (Reuters)-Computer virus writers started to use raging European
storms on Friday to attack thousands of computers in an unusual real-time
assault, head of research at Finnish data security firm F-Secure told
Reuters.

The virus, which the company named "Storm Worm," is sent to hundreds of
thousands of e-mail addresses globally, with the e-mail's subject line
saying "230 dead as storm batters Europe."

The attached file contains the so-called malware that can infiltrate
computer systems.

"What makes this exceptional is the timely nature of the attack," Mikko
Hypponen, head of research at F-Secure said.

Hypponen said thousands of computers around the world, most in private use,
had been affected.

He said most users would not notice the malware, or trojan, which creates a
back door to the computer that can be exploited later to steal data or to
use the computer to post spam.
