It doesn't matter, IMHO. Even if the reporter knows which OS was used, 
the average user doesn't care. And those who know what an OS is, will by 
default assume it is Windows. Now, if it would have been another OS, it 
might have been news worthy, but to mention that an email trojan was 
successful on a Windows machine isn't news worthy.
