The Continuing Saga of Malware by Email

We’re seeing reports of a new round of storm virus emails. This time they’re using valentine’s day to lure users to a site to download and run the malware. Otherwise it is essentially the same attack as before. We advise that you ensure all your email and virus defenses are running with the latest updates and that your users are reminded to ignore emails from unknown entities. They should also never download attachments from emails or web sites that are not explicitly trusted. There are plenty of potentially intriguing subjects that could be used to dup unsuspecting users. Things like winning Super Bowl tickets, checking out the latest American Idol videos, or even the latest news on the presidential campaign.
