EMERGENCY ALERT: W32/Bugbear-B spreading rapidly

  Sir Radfordin™ 16:39 05 Jun 2003

Sophos have seen fit to send out two emails today about this virus:

Sophos has received many reports regarding a new
email-aware virus called W32/Bugbear-B.

The W32/Bugbear-B virus is similar to its predecessor W32/Bugbear-A which spread widely in late 2002. However, Bugbear-B uses polymorphic techniques in an attempt to avoid detection.

Thanks for the warning. Unfortunately, because of a similarity of names and associations I can see that poor old Teddy will be coming up for another mass slaughter.

Thanks, for alert, i noticed a lot of updates lately on Norton. Why oh why..ive tried to do a bit and i mean a bit of programing, it aint easy but is fun, if i could write a virus , which must take a fair bit of skill, i think i would be writing stuff that could make me money, so what's the deal???

all the links but what are the key warning signs in an e-mail likely to contain this?

  Audeal 20:46 05 Jun 2003

Kitz E Kat. If I could write programs then I would be making my fortune out of it. These people make nothing, as far as I know, out of making Viruses. So this shows that their are a lot of very SICK and sorrowfull people out there.
