New dangerous trojan worm

I no doubt many of you have heard of this but for others I thought I would post the info.
A new Trojan had been spammed widely , using a real storm in Europe as a decoy message. The emails have a variable subject including "230 dead as storm batters Europe". Attachment names include "Full story.exe" or "Video.exe"
Please be warned if you do not have good security systems/software on your PC's.

Thanks too, I have been watching this junk coming in of late, and have had serious doubts above and beyond the irritating fact of spam - frankly I cannot understand why they are sent out - no one opens them on purpose,.... do they? I cannot emphasise enough the need to ensure that the preview window of outlook express is kept tightly closed. If it is in preview, it is open. and you have had it!! Best Wishes, Raymond
