E-Mail Virus

Not my own work but received this note from a friend
E-Mail Virus,E-Mail Virus,E-Mail Virus,E-Mail Virus




Subject: E-Mail Virus





 


                    WARNING!!!
  Emails with pictures of Osama Bin-Laden being hanged, captured, or
  committing suicide are being sent and the moment that you open these
  emails your computer will crash and you will not be able to fix it!!!
  This e-mail is being distributed through countries around the globe,
  but mainly in
  the
US and
Israel.
  Don't be inconsiderate; send this warning to whomever you know.
  Confirmed at
:  <http://www.snopes.com/computer/virus/osama.asp

  http://www.snopes.com/computer/virus/osama.asp
  Origins: There are few headlines that would grab the attention of more
 computer users around the world than "Osama bin Laden Captured," and
 that's exactly what whoever created this lurews counting on to snare
 unsuspecting victims who use Microsoft platforms.
  "Osama bin Laden Captured" isn't a virus in itself; it's the text of a
 message that includes a link to a file called EXPLOIT.EXE. When a
 message recipient clicks on this link to view what he thinks are
 pictures of Osama bin Laden's capture, he can end up downloading an
 executable Trojan known as Backdoor-AZU, BKDR_LARSLP.A, Download.Trojan,
 TrojanProxy.Win32.Small.b,or Win32.Slarp.< BR
 Clicking the embedded link in the "Osama bin Laden Captured" message
  auto-executes a file called "EXPLOIT.EXE," which exploits a known
 security hole to download the Trojan. According to McAfee Security:
  The Trojan opens a random port on the victim's machine. It sends the
  Port information to a webpage at IP address 66.139.77.145. The Trojan
  listens on  the open port for instructions and redirects traffic to
  other IPadresses. Spammers   and hackers can take advantage of
  compromised systems by using the infected computer as a middleman,
  allowing them to pass information through it and remain anonymous.
  Microsoft has made available updates that close the hole exploited by
  this Trojan.
