Emails with pictures of Osama Bin-Laden hanged 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.
If you get an email along the lines of "Osama bin Laden Captured" or
"Osama Hanged" don't open the attachment. 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 lure was 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. 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
IP addresses. Spammers and hackers can take advantage of compromised
systems by using the infected computer as a middleman, allowing them to
p [no swearing please] information through it and remain anonymous, BE CAREFUL!!
