Virus hooks onto CNN News headlines A PC virus has started to spread through e-mail, luring potential victims by disguising itself as a headline from CNN NewsE-mails laden with the virus, dubbed "Crowt.A" by Sophos, do not have a typical subject line and other characteristics. But the virus sends out e-mail messages with subject lines, message content and attachment names drawn from the latest news headlines on CNN's Web site. Very few Sophos customers have reported that they been affected by Crowt.A so far.
The only easy day was yesterday.
