Fake "Breaking News" Emails

The Internet has seen a flood of emails being sent by hackers pretending to be "Breaking News" alerts from either CNN or MSNBC.

The file contains a malicious Trojan Horse. Read more in the cnet News.com story entitled "Don't click that headline, security researchers warn", August 13, 2008.
