quoth Andrew on this day of Our Lord:
| The attached OpenType font file will cause Windows to restart
| immediately when the file is opened by the default viewer (fontview).
| I doubt anyone would suspect a "harmless" little font file of being
| able to cause such a thing to happen!
I ran strings over it:
Copyright 2003. All rights reserved.restarterRegular1.000;NONE;restarterOTF 1.000;PS 001.001;Core 1.0.29Please refer to the Copyright section for the font trademark attribution notices.
and then entered 'restarter' into Google, which returned information on a
trojan called restarter that does just that. Sophos and Symantec have
descriptions of somewhat different versions of the trojan.
