+ - Mass Mailer Worm Brings Email Misery Back->

Submitted by geek4
geek4 (1735644) writes "A mass mailer worm that links to a UK website is a throwback to the days of old, security researchers said

A mass-mailer worm flooded inboxes at a number of high-profile organisations today. It struck havoc in the US yesterday and may be lurking in UK inboxes when the workforce logs-in today.

The worm, dubbed ‘Here you have’ because of its email subject line, contains what appears to be a link to an Adobe PDF file. In fact, the link takes the victim to a screensaver (.scr) file on a web page hosted on the members.multimania.co.uk domain. Users who agree to install the file are then infected by the worm which mails itself to the users’ email contacts."
