Trojan warning

Just found this warning on PCPro News:

"Users have been told to beware of a spam email doing the rounds that claims to originate from the BBC and give details of Tony Blair's email address.
According to security firm, Sophos, the email appeared on election night with the subject and body 'BBC: Tony Blair email account hacked!' Anyone who opens the email lays their machine open to a series of attacks from Trojans. The malicious code is programmed to steal sensitive personal information including bank details.

'Clicking on the link takes users to a website which invisibly installs a Trojan horse on the victim's computer,' explains Graham Cluley, senior technology consultant for Sophos."

Take care folks. Don't click it!

Thank you Dabster. I have alerted the people who sit with me and press buttons like I do. They seemed interested.
