    At the time of writing Sophos has received just one report of this worm from the wild.


    W32/Gibe-D is a worm which spreads by sending out email and by making itself available for download via the KaZaA peer-to-peer file sharing system.

    If you run an infected file, W32/Gibe-D pops up a dialog claiming to be a Microsoft security update. (Microsoft never send out security updates via email, and never publish security updates on peer-to-peer file sharing networks.)
