Another beagle virus variant



Incidents.org is reporting this as well…

A new Beagle variant is making the rounds. It comes in an almost empty email, as a ZIP attachment containing the worm as an EXE. The attachment name, email subject and sole text content of the email all seem to be male or female surnames. Keep your eyes peeled, especially if your users are reading their mail over webmail, as it seems to take another couple of hours until the AV vendors have their patterns lined up.
