Not all Xmas Greeting are to be welcomed

  jack 20:17 17 Dec 2004

Security firms are warning about a Windows virus disguising itself as
an electronic Christmas card. The Zafi.D virus translates the
Christmas greeting on its subject line into the language of the person
receiving infected e-mail.

Ihopes they do not speard false alarm and desponancy.

Thanks jack,

Part of an email from a2,

Warning! Worm.Win32.Zafi.D!

The 4. variant of the Zafi worm is spreading since yesterday. Worm.Win32.Zafi.D has a size of 11,745 bytes and is packed with FSG. It spreads via email as a christmas greeting and also via file sharing networks. In addition to the spreading mechanism Worm.Win32.Zafi.D installs a Backdoor on the computer which enables remote administration of the machine.
