Trojan threat targeting Irrawaddy readers and others who follow Burma-related news.

Dear The Irrawaddy readers


We would like to alert you to a new Trojan threat targeting Irrawaddy readers and others who follow Burma-related news.

Several readers have complained that they received infected emails from news@irrawaddy.org with the subject heading "The Irrawaddy Today's Newsletter." These unsolicited spam emails contain no text, but have an attached Word document with the filename "Mystery Deepens around 'Swimmer's' Arrest".

These emails were NOT sent by The Irrawaddy. Please do not open them or click on the enclosed attachment. Doing so will infect your computer with the Trojan Troj/MalDoc-Fam, which can be used to steal information from your computer.

If you know anyone who regularly follows news about Burma, please inform them about this threat, which is not confined to subscribers to The Irrawaddy's newsletter.
