    Seems like a new variant or virus every few hours. I read somewhere that FSecure thinks that the virus writer is watching the AV company's web sites. When they publish a def he/she looks to see what they are keying on, alters the virus and rereleases it. Risky business if you ask me but it seems to be working. Like you DjM my servers are getting hammered with viruses too.... We got a netsky.c in before the def was avaialable that one "moron" clicked on.

    Negative: we got a few of the j variant telling our users, (including my CEO), that I was cutting off their email..... Shoulda heard the whining, (especially the CEO...<LOL&gt, even though the attachment was "securitynotice.txt" telling them that the virus had been removed. I only emailed them all a week ago telling them how to check the attachment for a txt extension by doing a "save-as" so they could see the entire name of the attachment.....<sigh>

    Don't know if its been said or not, but your AV didn't catch it because it couldn't scan it.

    The files are coming through in a password protected encrypted attachment.

    The AV scanners simply can't open them.
    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

    Not the case here phish, I have my gateway configured so that if the attachment is a password protected encrypted file, it gets stripped off....no questions asked

    Bagle VS NetSky

    Quoting a Sans Ezine:

    "[Editor's Note (Tan): Bagle and NetSky are fighting with each other. In
    NetSky.F, researchers found the following text: "Skynet AntiVirus -
    Bagle - you are a looser!!!!" This NetSky worm variant tries to remove
    Bagle worm infection if it finds it on an infected computer. And in
    Bagle.K, a message is embedded saying, "Hey, NetSky, ***** off you
    b*tch!"] "


    Is it China VS Europe or what?

    Nope spammers vs virus writer who doesn't like spammers. Strange days indeed i guess we cheer for the lesser of two evils?

    I just recieved this e-mail below. It was "supposedly" but it`s wasn`t sent from my ISP. The x`s are the names of my isp. attactched with a zip file. Clever.......








    There is an e-mail circulating that comes from "support@xxxxxxxsystem.com" or "staff@xxxxxxxxsystem.com" with an attachment that contains a ZIP file. THIS IS A VIRUS! DO NOT open the attachment (usually attach.zip).

    The body of the e-mail reads:

    Dear user, the management of xxxxxxxsystem.com mailing system wants to let you know that,

    Our antivirus software has detected a large amount of viruses outgoing from your e-mail account, you may use our free anti-virus tool to clean up your computer software.

    Pay attention on attached file.

    Attached file protected with the password for security reasons. Password is 23152.

    Cheers,

    The xxxxxxxxxx.com team.



    Please notice the bad grammar and spacing issues in the body of the message;a good clue that this is a phony. This email did NOT come from our company, and the sender addresses do not exist. The addresses were "spoofed" (created and placed in there by the virus). All email address to "@xxxxxxxxx.com" or "@xxxxxxxxxxx.com" are scanned for viruses; this virus most likely came into our network from a foreign email address domain name and then propagated itself within the network.

    As always, if you have questions, please call our Help Desk at xxx-xxx-xxxx. We are open from 6 am until 1am, 7 days a week.
