New computer virus unleashed via e-mail

A new virus is using the topics of the death of U.S. President Bush and nuclear war as bait.

The Register reported Wednesday that rogue VX programmers had created the Dref-N e-mail aware worm and that it was suing false reports of nuclear war, and of the deaths of President George W. Bush and Russian President Vladimir Putin as bait to attract its victims, according to computer specialists in Boston.

The Dref-N worm’s e-mail subject lines include items such as “White House news!” “Incredible news” and “ATTN TO EVERYBODY!”
