Crowt-A worm or virus whatever you call it

Crowt-A worm has used a cool social engineering technique to get into ppl's machines and the way it happens with Win machines This just in! Your windows box is mine!

Crowt-A's subject line and attachment share the same name, but continually change to mirror the front-page headline on CNN's website. The message text is also lifted from CNN as part of a social engineering technique designed to trick users into believing infected emails are pukka.
