I'm Not Sending You E-Mail

For the record, I'm not e-mailing you zip files with viruses in them, regardless of what the headers say...

It's called [email protected] and it's spreading rapidly. See the details at Symantec, or an even better writeup at McAafe.

Update: Lair noticed it as well.

The real question is who would be stupid enough to open a zip file, and extract the executable file - thus infecting themselves?

Obviously a lot of people are stupid enough to open them. My grease trap looks like Pixy's.
