I received an e-mail today that looked very much like a virus. Here is the

Attachment - erupts.avi.exe



Subject - New Southern California wildfire erupts

Either this is a new Trojan that changes it body and subject based on the
current  AP  news or someone used a very lame trick against me. =)



I'm guessing the latter.  Although story scraping would be possible,
