SANS – Internet Storm Center – Cooperative Cyber Threat Monitor And Alert System

Lovely. Update your a/v sigs as this is now being detected. If you are not scnning your e-mail pelase do so. A patch is NOT avaialbe at this time. MS is working on one and should be released this upcoming patch tuesday. This is though what is known as a targeted attack. this is not something that has been unleashed on the entire internet and it is apparently aimed at corporations. Do not open attachments until you have verfied they are clean if they contain a word document. This is not a particularly destructive payload it is aimed at taking over the machine for any number of purposes.
