    Mimail Mass-Email Worm Propagation

    "Mimail" Mass-Email Worm Propagation

    Synopsis:

    ISS X-Force has detected the spread of a mass-emailing worm named
    "Mimail". The Mimail worm is currently propagating aggressively across the
    Internet. Mimail takes advantage of a vulnerability in Internet Explorer
    to hide an executable program within what appears to be a benign HTML file
    delivered to recipients via email.

    Impact:

    The executable payload of the worm is hidden within a HTML file that is
    delivered in a compressed ZIP archive. Many Internet users believe that
    HTML files are not dangerous. The Mimail worm was designed specifically to
    appear to be benign, and to execute via a flaw in Internet Explorer.
    Viruses or worms that propagate by exploiting flaws in software are
    particularly dangerous, and they generally propagate more effectively.
