movie.exe spammed
If you're still not blocking EXEs on your email gateway, chances are your users are getting flooded by the latest scam at the moment. We're receiving reports of a "movie.exe" 95c563731b7828d6e98eae81ee08869f making the rounds, attached to emails with very "clickable" subject lines like "USA Just Have Started World War III" / "Missle Strike: The USA kills more then 20000 Iranian citizens" / "Israel Just Have Started World War III".  You get the drift - the kind of friendly headlines you would expect to get on a peaceful Easter sunday.   AV coverage is nonexistent at this time, so be careful.
Thanks to Mike for submitting the first sample of this critter!
