I don't know if this is new or not but I'm taking no chances.
Recieved just a few minutes ago.
Copy of mail as follows:
Viruses found in the attached files.
The attached file q216309.exe is infected by I-Worm/Gibe.A. The attachment was moved to the virus vault.
The original message follows:
this is the latest version of security update, the
"8 Apr 2002 Cumulative Patch" update which eliminates all
known security vulnerabilities affecting Internet Explorer and
MS Outlook/Express as well as six new vulnerabilities, and is
discussed in Microsoft Security Bulletin MS02-005. Install now to
protect your computer from these vulnerabilities, the most serious of which
could allow an attacker to run code on your computer.
Description of several well-know vulnerabilities:
- "Incorrect MIME Header Can Cause IE to Execute E-mail Attachment" vulnerability.
If a malicious user sends an affected HTML e-mail or hosts an affected
e-mail on a Web site, and a user opens the e-mail or visits the Web site,
Internet Explorer automatically runs the executable on the user's computer.
- A vulnerability that could allow an unauthorized user to learn the location
of cached content on your computer. This could enable the unauthorized
user to launch compiled HTML Help (.chm) files that contain shortcuts to
executables, thereby enabling the unauthorized user to run the executables
on your computer.
- A new variant of the "Frame Domain Verification" vulnerability could enable a
malicious Web site operator to open two browser windows, one in the Web site's
domain and the other on your local file system, and to pass information from
your computer to the Web site.
- CLSID extension vulnerability. Attachments which end with a CLSID file extension
do not show the actual full extension of the file when saved and viewed with
Windows Explorer. This allows dangerous file types to look as though they are simple,
harmless files - such as JPG or WAV files - that do not need to be blocked.
Versions of Windows no earlier than Windows 95.
This update applies to:
Versions of Internet Explorer no earlier than 4.01
Versions of MS Outlook no earlier than 8.00
Versions of MS Outlook Express no earlier than 4.01
How to install
Run attached file q216309.exe
How to use
You don't need to do anything after installing this item.

The technology gained by the coders for the "driveby auto download" crowd of parasite warez scum now leads to normal virus classification. When the Net users recognizes that these attempts to capture their computer for shoving ADS IN FRONT OF THEIR FACE 24/7 stem from P2P, parasite wares and the other traffic hijackers are just trojan horse computer viruses they might rebel. The Ad industry is destroying themselves by creative Ad blindness and that especuially goes for e-mail advertising. When all advertising is considered spam in the minds of the users then monitizing site traffic will become 100 times more difficult.
