A new mass mailing email worm is spreading on the internet, masking itself as a message from Microsoft's support team.

The new worm is known both as W32/Palyh and [email protected] and arrives as an executable attachment to email messages with a variety of subjects and messages. All emails containing the new virus purport to come from the same address: [email protected], according to alerts posted by a number of leading antivirus software vendors.
