Some advice for the day: don't click on every link in your email. It looks like the Peacomm (Storm) authors have decided to use past and future events in China as lures for their latest creation. A new spam run is in progress with links to a file called "beijing.exe," which is currently detected by Symantec as Trojan.Peacomm.D.

Some of the subject lines we've seen so far are:

The most powerful quake hits China
Countless victims of earthquake in China
Death toll in China is growing
Recent earthquake in china took a heavy toll
Recent china earthquake kills million
China is paralyzed by new earthquake
Death toll in China exceeds 1000000
A new powerful disaster in China
A new deadly catastrophe in China
2008 Olympic Games are under the threat
