Although it is rated as low, CERCC decided that because of the name of the executable, that we would inform you of a new Internet Worm.
It comes with a Subject Line of Happy New Year, and has a Christmas.exe attachment.
The major virus vendors are reporting it, and none to date have a fix for it.
Computer Associates called with the information at 9:30 AM. The other major AntiVirus sites are reporting it as W32.Reeezak.A@mm and W32/Maldal@mm.
Please notify clients and users NOT to open any Attachment that is identified as Christmas.exe
In general, never open an attachment that ends with .exe, and as a better precaution, never open an attachment you do not know for sure is clean.
