I just wanted to alert everyone that I received a bogus email this morning from the ICS monitoring team. I was suspicious because there were lots of English mistakes, because the return address was firstname.lastname@example.org, and also because I couldn't see why I would be a target of such a letter http://www.myspacefreesmilies.com/sm...nocent0007.gif. The email contains an executable, which I opened using Wine, to see if it would work (yes, I did do this on purpose! I was quite prepared to re-install my system if necessary!), but it produces the following error:
However, if you run this file on a Windows machine, you will be infected with a root kit virus. Here is the message:Code:
