A new variant of Warezov has been mass mailed, and is spreading rapidly
Kaspersky Lab has detected mass mailings of a new variant of Warezov, Email-Worm.Win32.Warezov.ms. The mass mailing started on 3rd April 2007.
The worm spreads as an attachment to infected emails. Once launched, it may terminate antivirus and firewall programs and download other malware.
An urgent update to antivirus databases has been released.
If you are using Kaspersky Anti-Virus/ Kaspersky Internet Security 6.0, enable Proactive Protection, and new variants will be detected without the need to update antivirus databases.
A detailed description of Email-Worm.Win32.Warezov.ms will be available in the near future.
