Hello,

I just received a mail from \"support@microsoft.com\" subject \"Re:Approved (Ref. 3394-65467)\", with an attached file \"screen_temp.pif\". Norton Antivirus did\'nt \"say\" anything, but I made the update for virus definitions and it then \"told\" me it is a virus.



Have a nice day!

Sylvain

for sure! May 21, 2003

here is what my company says about it:



Users may have received unexpected e-mails from support@microsoft.com with various subjects and attachments. This e-mail belongs to an e-mail worm called W32.HLLW.Mankxmm. The W32.HLLW.Mankx@mm worm, also known as W32.Sobig.B@mm and W32/PalyhMM was accessed to medium risk by the major anti virus companies.

Removal May 23, 2003

If you think that your system can be infected:



F-Secure has created a special removal tool to remove the active Palyh infection and all its traces. The tool is available from



ftp://ftp.f-secure.com/anti-virus/tools/f-sobig.zip



I recommend the use of for instance Mailwasher/Mailwasher Pro to read mail at server level before choosing which ones to download. Mailwasher is free, and can be found here: http://www.mailwasher.net/

Most recent e-mail worms use random combinations of sender, recipient and reference line.

Best regards, Ralf
