BEWARE NEW TROJAN VIRUS:
There's a new trojan spam involving a fake warning from a Yale University professor about student vandalism that supposedly happened during the holidays. When curious readers follow the link, they are hit with a WMF file that immediatly downloads a file that can take over their computer. It works on all common Windows platforms, and a vendor patch for the vulnerability is not currently available. As always, don't follow any links or open any graphics that you are not expecting to receive.
