This polymorphic worm is spreading via email with varying subjects, message bodies, and attachment file names. TrendLabs is currently doing an in-depth analysis regarding the spread of this malware and will inform you as soon as possible.

    Strangely enough, (NOT!) I got an unknown and unexpected e-mail with an attachment today, which turned out to be the new variant of the Bagle Worm.

    Luckily, I'm not one of these people who just go opening e-mail attachments without checking them first, so I didn't get caught.

    There was a difference in the way this was delivered to the way it is described in on the Trend Micro page, the attachment is zipped and the picture is of a five digit number that is the password to unzip the archive.

    Interesting, this is the first time I have actually gotten a virus via the e-mail!
