" Photos of a "dead" Saddam Hussein are the lure for a new mass-mailing worm, Sophos warned on Thursday, in the latest instance of attackers using well-known figures as bait."Published: February 3, 2005, 11:31 AM PST By Dawn Kawamoto Staff Writer, CNET News.com "The Bobax.H worm purports to offer photos that show that the former Iraqi leader was killed while attempting to escape from custody, the antivirus company said. The worm can spread via e-mail and by using the Microsoft LSASS vulnerability, the same flaw used by the Sasser worm to spread in record time. The vulnerability was reported 10 months ago, and a patch is available."
The only easy day was yesterday.
