RE: [ok] Possible Virus/Trojan

It is a good idea but if it was a new version of a e-mail virus, we will be
seeing it all over the place by now. 

I don't have a copy of the exe, it was deleted off the server before I could
get someone to save it. I have it on my client but Outlook is blocking it.
There may be a way of getting it out of Outlook but I am not sure if it is
worth the effort. Therefore I don't have the ability to dissemble it. 

I was the only person in the company to get this type of e-mail which is
very odd, but I did get the very cool MyDoom.0 today as well.

I'm guessing the latter.  Although story scraping would be possible,
intellegent naming of the .exe would not be.  Most likely a friend... or
enemy.

Looks pretty easy to scrape the URL for a useful name... and if you've
already
scraped the story, you probably HAVE the URL you scraped it from... ;)
