NIBU.D TROJAN: Osama Bin Laden Captured email
Osama Bin Laden Captured -- An email is circulating on the internet today that claims to be from CNN or BBC. The email utilizes this exploit to download a file pics.chm that in turn contains and executes a Trojan. McAfee has identified this as Exploit-MhtRedir.gen and Norton identifies it as Backdoor.Nibu.D. The Trojan once executed attempts to steal passwords and bank account information.
An example I found in my in-box this morning:
