Clever Virus Attack.

Just received this e-mail message, with an attachment entitled "schneier@counterpane.com." The file is really an executable .com file, presumably one harboring a virus. Clever social engineering attack, and one I had not seen before.

From: ((some fake address))
To: schneier@counterpane.com
Subject: Message could not be delivered

Dear user schneier@counterpane.com,

Your email account has been used to send a huge amount of spam messages during the last week. Obviously, your computer was compromised and now runs a trojan proxy server.

Please follow our instruction in the attached file in order to keep your computer safe.

Virtually yours,
counterpane.com user support team.
