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,
intellegent naming of the .exe would not be. Most likely a friend...
Sure it would be. In this case, at least, the executable is just named
based on the last word of the headline plus ".avi.exe".
