WARNING! NEW VIRUS OR WORM
Feb 23rd, 2004, 8:49am
 
Just thought I'd pass this on, m8s.
 
I received an email last night entitled "Here it is, mate"
 
There is an attachment containing a virus, but the email looks innocent enough. It says:
 
"Here's what I promised you mate" making people think it's a friend sending something, or someone you may not know very well - causing you to open the attachment.
 
DON'T!
 
The guy's name is Robert. But be careful. Any signing off name could be applied.
 
Hokey. Smiley

Hi m8's  Grin
 
This is a warning from Lavasoft Adaware.
sory it's a copy and paste job.
 
Win32.MMail.A continues its spread across the internet. Here's some further information.
 
Win32.MMail.A
Discovered January 26, 2004 at 6:06PM EST
Detected January 26, 2004 at 7:49PM EST
Added to referencefile 252 (01R252 27.01.2004)
 
Also Known As: W32.Novarg.A@mm, W32.Mydoom@MM, W32.Shimg, WORM_MIMAIL.R
 
Worm emails itself to datamined email addresses. The recipient will receive an email with various headings, including:
Hi
Hello
Error
MAIL DELIVERY SYSTEM
Mail Transaction Failed
Returned Mail: Response Error
Server Report
Test
An attachment (the worm) is included using the file extension .exe, .pif, .zip, and .scr. Filenames include body, document, file, message, test, and text.
 
Upon execution, it will drop taskmon.exe and shimgapi.dll in the %system% folder, and set taskmon.exe to autostart in the HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run subkey.
 
This worm also performs denial of service attacks on several websites, which are dependent on the system time of the infected computer.
 
If you receive this email, do not open it. Immediately delete the email, download the latest referencefile (01R254 01.02.2004 at the last revision of this document) and perform a full system scan as shown by the settings here:
