    For those interested in the technical aspect from this nastie:


    "We've released a digest of a few of the messages that passed through TH-Research about this new worm.

    In it is information about the worm that is not included in the different vendors web pages, and requires a higher understanding of assembly and reverse engineering.

    We release it for the purpose of assisting sysadmins and security researchers by making the information available publicly."

    Nice article... but does it mean that until february 12 my mailserver will receive 2 virusses per minute, perhaps growing to a larger number? :rolleyes: :eek:
    O well, I'll just create a procmail rule :doubt:
