Just lifted this from the BBC website:

Fake Bin Laden e-mail hides virus.

Users are being warned not to open junk e-mail messages claiming Osama Bin Laden has been captured.
The messages claim to contain pictures of the al-Qaeda leader's arrest but anyone opening the attachment will fall victim to a Microsoft Windows virus.

Since 1 June anti-virus companies have been catching the junk mail messages in large numbers.

God Bless America!
God Bless!
Captured! Finally!
Finally! Captured!
He has been captured
God Bless the USA!
Warnings about the fake Bin Laden arrest virus have also been issued by Panda Software and F-Secure.

The vulnerability exploited by Psyme is found in Windows 2000, 95, 98, ME, NT, XP and Windows Server 2003. Users were urged to update their version of Windows to close the loophole
