Latest Storm Worm - uses fake You-Tube links

This new version of the Storm worm is designed to appear as legitimate video links to You Tube's site. Please be careful with all email links as the storm worm attacks continue.

Storm of the Day, Now with YouTube

The latest variation of the Storm worm claims to be a you tube video. The link looks like a link to you tube, but actually points to a "numeric" URL like old storm variants. The downloaded binary is called "video.exe"

(URL REMOVED) ... The link appears to be a valid U-Tube address but is spoofed to direct users to a malicious web site
