This one looks nasty. Like others, it kills well known processes including well known firewall & anti-virus programs.

From www.eweek.com :

"Anti-virus vendors have raised the alarm for a new mass-mailing worm with a dangerous backdoor component.

The worm, called W32.Maslan.C@mm, arrives as an attachment promising naked photos of Playboy models but, if executed, drops an IRC (Inter Relay Chat) bot capable of transmitting passwords and sensitive information back to the virus writer."
