In the Wild

e-Secure have just alerted me to a new virus in the wild and spreading fast. Has anyone else seen it yet?

Apparently it was first reported by Drexel University and this new piece of mailicious code is reportedly undetected by Norton AV and is "mis-detected by McAfee", which sees it as the virus 'backdoor-jz' but is unable to remove it.

e-Secure reprorts that "The virus appears to infect Windows hosts regardless of the OS version. It appears to alter the start menu items of infected hosts and makes them look garbled".

So be extra cautious this weekend and make sure that what ever live update Anti-virus service you subscribe to is working, just in case.
