    This new variant will possibly not be detected by some antviruses at the moment (although most have received a copy in the meanwhile).

    It seems the file "decypt-password.exe" creates a entry in c:/window/ trying to establish an internet connection using the standard procedure.

    Please keep your antivirus(es) updated!

    We have put a free Frethem Worm Remover up for download in the meanwhile. Those interested can grab a copy from our downloads page:
