Just heads up guys about this nasty virus which is spreading pretty rapidly

READ
http://securityresponse.symantec.com...varg.a@mm.html

Quote:

W32.Novarg.A@mm is a mass-mailing worm that arrives as an attachment with the file extension .bat, .cmd, .exe, .pif, .scr, or .zip.

When a computer is infected, the worm will set up a backdoor into the system by opening TCP ports 3127 through 3198, which can potentially allow an attacker to connect to the computer and use it as a proxy to gain access to its network resources.

In addition, the backdoor can download and execute arbitrary files.

The worm will perform a Denial of Service (DoS) starting on February 1, 2004. It also has a trigger date to stop spreading on February 12, 2004.

Also known as:
W32/Mydoom@MM [McAfee], WORM_MIMAIL.R [Trend], Win32.Mydoom.A [Computer Associates], W32/Mydoom-A [Sophos], I-Worm.Novarg [Kaspersky]

Infection Length: 22,528 bytes, variable file size for a .zip attachment

Systems Affected: Windows 2000, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows NT, Windows Server 2003, Windows XP

Systems Not Affected: DOS, Linux, Macintosh, OS/2, UNIX, Windows 3.x

people who are stupid enough to open up attachments like that from complete strangers should be all shot and mamed horribly in my opinion. From someone/thing that you have no idea about, spam or virus. Either way you don't want it so delete it. If it was from someone you know then ask them to confirm it or scan it first.

Like i'd believe that and want to run a trojan. But then again that's just me and some people really are just stupid. Also far enough about a warning too
