Supposedly, it makes use of the same Windows vulnerability, and then downloads and installs the patch to fix the exploit! =)

The poster has demanded we remove all his contributions, less he takes legal action.
We have done so.
Now Tyberius Prime expects him to start complaining that we removed his 'free speech' since this message will replace all of his posts, past and future.
Don't follow his example - seek real life help first.

This is not about the worm, I think, but I have an email, ending .com.br, that is receiving a lot of emails with these new viruses. Just today I have already deleted more than 200 messages. My email provider has an anti-virus scanner so I am not at risk, but for every message with the virus I got another message saying that that message had a virus. So, so far, more than 400 messages deleted. I am going crazy with this sh*t.
I think it's time to change my emails.

Same here, I had 72 emails in my box today. 45 which has viruses attached and some 35 last night.

It is starting to piss me off. I am all for find these people who wrote it and do something horrable. Like shoving a hot AMD processor with heat sink and fan up some oriface and I don't mean the easy ones.

I've been getting a boat load of infected e-mail as well. Just started like two days ago.
Mine are of the .p, .pi, and .pif variety. A few .scr, but not many.
Subjects include: Thank you, That movie, Your Details - mostly with Re:, but not all.

Anyways, I think the virus/trojan pointed out by Slime is pretty funny. At least it's trying to be helpful.
