FBI Email Scam

There is an email virus going around in emails claiming to be from the FBI. It warns that they have monitored you accessing illegal websites and requires you to answer questions in the attached document. That certainly isn't the way the FBI would go after people, but I am sure it will scare a lot of people into opening the attachment. I hope they have good antivirus software.

See the FBI's press release.

Update: I have also heard that this comes in a CIA version. And here is something pretty similar pretending to be from the BKA (German equivalent of the FBI) with some analysis of the social engineering tactics being used.
