Tsunami.exe

A piece of malicious code is making the rounds of the Internet masquerading as a Tsunami relief donation request. While not really surprising I find this is somewhat of a new low even for the writers of malware. Words like despicable, shameful, contemptible, pathetic, and feeble come to mind. I had to check a thesaurus for printable comments, can you tell? Filter attachments at your perimeter in organizations, use up-to-date anti-virus, and as users do not open attachments.


I have to agree with the guy. It is pretty sad that they would stoop this low.. :roll:

Wow. That really is pretty sick :( These guys need to be educated. Possibly by being held underwater and beaten by bits of wood, bits of metal, trees, cars, houses etc. Then they might have some sort of respect for the survivors of the tsunami. Though I guess these guys don't have much concept of the word "respect".

Surely there's got to be ways to track these guys down? Technology is getting more advanced by the day - you'd think it should be possible to find a squash the guys who make malware, virsu, spam etc. Sigh.

There's always someone in this world that is willing to go all the way. I'm not suprised.
