New Virus or Old One with Broken Payload

  1. We have experienced 3 of these today.

    The attachments are 23k in size each time, have been enclosed in, and

    The actual filenames are "avaxy.htm
    or "file.txt
    or "wvfyfar.htm
    (note the spaces or undisplayable characters before the .scr extensions).

    Etrust antivirus with 23.63.75 will not detect them as viruses, so I thought
    this was something new or the payload was damaged before arrival.

    If it's novarg, then defs just came out on symantec yesterday. I don't know
    when worm was released, though.


    If it don't work, hit it.
    If it still doesn't work, kick it.
    If it works after hitting it and kicking it, then it doesn't matter if
    hitting it or kicking it helped, what's important is that it works.
