"A new worm and a phishing scam are targeting members of the America Online and Yahoo instant messaging networks, security companies warned Tuesday."
Published: May 24, 2005, 4:43 PM PDT By Joris Evers Staff Writer, CNET News.com "In both cases, people receive an instant message with an apparent reference to the newly released "Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith" movie, encouraging them to click on a link.... "Both seek to capitalize on momentum and enthusiasm around the 'Star Wars' movie." In the case of the AOL worm, the text in the instant message is: "hehe, i found this funny movie," and the word "this" is a hyperlink, according to the IMLogic advisory. The Yahoo message references "StarGames" in the link, IMLogic said in its warning. IMLogic has listed both the Yahoo and AOL issues as "medium" risk threats."
The only easy day was yesterday.
