So, WW3 hasn't really started? Goddamn, I was hoping to find something interesting to watch on the telly for a change.
It beggars belief that anyone would think that they'd first hear of World War III through a spam email. But hackers are relying on such credulous fools in an attempt to spread a new Trojan. Widely spammed emails with subject lines including "Third World War has begun", "20000 US Soldiers in Iran", and "US Army crossed Iran's …
of their intended targets by a few light years. I assume malware deployers read and comprehend the news, the people (I use the term very loosely) they are likely to get with this tactic don't know anything about Iran, Isreal, or the tensions in the middle-east. They need to dumb down if they want to do really well try pointing to the latest sex tapes by some well known blond for example.
Hmmm , sounds more like a sneaky backdoor NSA subplot in a bigger picture with the media release section at the Pentagon rereleasing crap photo shopped pictures allegedly released by the official Iranian Revolutionary Guards Web Media as the real deal ! Undoubtedly , just another play toy released by the General Mike's old other boys spy on all internally/externally communications kindergarten play group (all foreign non US owned energy giants are fully targetted for some strange reason and numerous "Red Storm Rising" plans are constantly being reviewed and redrafted in the Pentagon as well ?) in Maryland just to add fuel to the fire before January 10th 2009 !
Oh how low can they go , but they still have a lot of ground to make for in what the total number of machines that were infected with the SONY-BMG malware of 2005 which came as an unwanted and unasked windoze only guest on many audio CD discs that year , and those that wanted to blow the whistle were threatened with dire consequences and a Jeffrey White take down order under the DMCA Act !
Reason number 12501 to change and upgrade to another OS system !
Truth may be stranger then fiction ?
"Iraq's controversial decision to continue building a nuclear plant was used to bait attacks designed to spread a series of Trojans back in 2005, Sophos reports."
Would that be a bit like "Iran's controversial decision to continue building a nuclear plant was used to bait attacks designed to spread a series of Trojans back in 2005, Sophos reports."?
WW III actually is starting at this moment. It's all due to the butterfly effect. An old lady in Wimbledon was complaining endlessly about the rising prices in the local shop to the Pakistani shopkeeper, it pissed him off so much that when his father in law in Pakistan phoned him asking for more money to be sent over, he told him to fuck off ( in Urdu ).
Of course that put his father in law in a bad mood, he in turn had a real go at the Al- Quaeda terrorist who was lodging with him. The father in law finally chucked the terrorist out of the house. The terrorist is now so pissed off that he has finally told his terrorist cell to set off the vest pocket bomb they bought from the Khazakstanis some years before and which is tucked away in Bhagdad. So, now it is time to put your head between your knees and kiss your arse goodbye!
I've been getting various forms of these for two or three months, on a fairly regular basis. The Iran ones only started up fairly recently, but there were GOBs of them talking about another earthquake in China, saying that an earthquake had knocked Beijing flat. In stilted language, though, of course.
Sometimes I think I should hire myself out as a malware copy editor...
