See: http://news.zdnet.co...39161519,00.htm

They tried it again today in the newsgroups (download link has been blacked out):

Subject: Arnold Schwarzenegger Commits Suicide

Early this morning Arnold Schwarzenegger was found hanging by his neck from the large oak tree in his Californian garden.  In a suicide note found at the scene he tells of his sordid sex life and lack of will to live.  A copy of the suicide note which was found by journalists has been included here
http://############/...warzenegger.zip


There is one file in the zip archive: Arnold Schwarzenegger.scr. The icon gives the trojan the appearance of being a quicktime file.

"...attached to a message that was posted on over 30,000 usenet newsgroups and is not being spread via e-mail, said Web security vendor Sophos...the virus itself had already appeared on the Internet before, but the virus writer had apparently repackaged it by saying it contained Bin Laden's suicide photos."

"...Sophos warned Friday of a scheme that invokes Osama bin Laden to convince people to open a file containing a Trojan horse called Hackarmy..."

("30,000 usenet newsgroups" seems like alot, but be aware, anyway!)
