Warning! Virus emails! : "Emails are making the rounds that claim to come from CNN, and carry a subject of 'CNN.com Daily Top 10'. Well, they are neither. But the emails contain click-friendly headlines with enticing subjects like 'Will all Americans be obese by 2030?' Now who wouldn't want to read THAT?!

Clicking takes you to the netherworld, of course. You currently receive a file called 'get_flash_update.exe' (yeah, sure!)."

Seems to be the latest Storm botnet trojan - if you run the 'update', you get owned and infested.
