Cleaver, but not Smart Enough

A great case of 'human engineering'.

Sober worm spreads like wildfire | CNET News.com

The virus adds a few lines to the bottom of the message that indicates that the attachment was scanned for virus, and is safe to open. In an effort to validate itself, it claims to have been checked by a server on the user's domain. Thus, I got a message saying that it was scanned by dougbunger.com's anti-virus server. Well, I don't got one.

Besides, my mail is routed to my SideKick, which (thus far) has no native virus.
