Trojan Horse lurks in World Cup tournament email
German fans have been complaining for sometime about a bug in their underperforming national soccer team ahead of the World Cup soccer tournament, which begins next month in the country. Now they're having to worry about a bug of a different kind, a Trojan horse, which is masquerading in a downloadable tournament game plan.
The Baden-Württemberg State Bureau of Criminal Investigation (LKA) warned on Wednesday of an e-mail with a link to a self-extracting Excel file that claims to contain the game plan for the soccer tournament. The German-language e-mail contains the message "Fussball Weltmeisterschaft 2006 in Deutschland" (2006 World Cup Soccer Tournament in Germany) and the link "googlebook.exe."
