'Storm Worm' hits computers around the world
By Reuters
Published: January 19, 2007, 4:45 AM PST

Computer virus writers started to use raging European storms on Friday to attack thousands of computers in an unusual real-time assault, head of research at Finnish data security firm F-Secure told Reuters.

The virus, which the company named "Storm Worm," has been sent to hundreds of thousands of e-mail addresses globally, with the e-mail's subject line saying "230 dead as storm batters Europe."

Yet we remain on the shore of what we know."
