US-CERT has received reports of new phishing activity, some of which has been linked to Storm Worm. The latest activity is centered around messages related to the recent earthquake in China and the upcoming Olympic Games. This Trojan is spread via an unsolicited email message that contains a link to a malicious website. This website contains a video that, when opened, may run the executable file "beijing.exe" to infect the user's system with malicious code.
