A new Internet worm is reported In The Wild and spreading quickly from Sweden. Win32/Ganda.A@mm is a mass mailing internet worm, distributing via its own SMTP engine. Judging by two hard-coded strings (\"I support animal-liberators worldwide\" and \"[WORM.SWEDENSUX] Coded by Uncle Roger in HSrn÷sand, Sweden, 03.03. I am being discriminated by the swedish schoolsystem. This is a response to eight long years of discrimination\"), this worm is probably written by a Swedish teenager. The first reports are dating back in March 16 and originate from Sweden.

You should update your antivirus software and avoid messages with subjects: \"DISKRIMINERAD !!!!\", \"Screensaver advice.\", \"Spy pics.\", \"GO USA !!!!\", \"G.W Bush animation.\", \"Is USA a UFO?\", \"Is USA always number one?\", \"LINUX.\", \"Nazi propaganda?\", \"Catlover.\", \"Disgusting propaganda.\", etc.
