WHO Declares Flu A(H1N1) a Pandemic

Several media outlets are reporting that the World Health Organization (WHO) has officially declared the A(H1N1) flu outbreak a pandemic. 

More information is available at the following sites:

The April diary on this issue can be found here.

The SANS Leadership Lab Pandemic Planning page is also worth a look.

 From a security point of view we can expect a new rash of bogus domains, phishing and malware attacks.  So as usual be diligent.
