New worm

Is anyone else suddenly getting a larger number of emails with ZIP and EXE files? Specifically Update-KBnnnn-x86.exe?

EDIT: Yup, I was right. Symantec called it W32.Stration.EC@mm. Sophos calls is W32/Stration-BQ. CA calls it Win32/Stration Family. Trend Micro calls is TROJ_STRAT.GG.

Be especially careful of emails with .ZIP or .EXE files attached. That seems to be how these things are getting through email.

Interesting. I just got a flood of them to various of the email addresses on my domain, and that starts getting me worried about a new outbreak.

Interesting.
Tonight I got an alert from Symantec that a remote system was trying to access my comptuer via Valve Steam (game program I have).. it blocked it and I marked it to block forever but yeah.
Gremlins out tonight!
