    just got this from trend, which everybody should subscribe to by the way;

    Dear Trend Micro Customer:

    This non-destructive, memory-resident variant of WORM_FRETHEM.D propagates via email. It arrives as an attachment with the following details:

    Subject: Re: Your password!

    Message Body: You can access very important information by this password
    DO NOT SAVE password to disk use your mind
    now presscancel

    Attachment: DECRYPT-PASSWORD.EXE

    On systems with unpatched Internet Explorer, the file attachments automatically execute when this email message is previewed or opened in Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express.

    WORM_FRETHEM.K is detected by pattern file #317.

    Thanks for the head's up.

    Wish idiots would get protected, I've had over 30 viruses sent to me in the past two months.
