Yes I have heard about W32/Gokar@MM and also read about it at NAI I have not seen in in the wild yet. NAI had not much to tell about W32/Gokar@MM except that NAI had updated their extra virus defenitions against it, their Risk Assessment level was low.
Sophos had more to say about W32/Gokar@MM more to read here.
Thanks for the link to CNN though. They had almost more to tell then NAI and Sophos :-).
