Badtrans Virus on the Rise

Yet another e-mail worm is spreading wildly around the internet. The W32.Badtrans.B@mm worm has been upgraded to a level 4 threat by the Symantec Security Response team. Similar in nature to previous worms, it spreads by using MAPI to email itself to people stored in the windows address book. It also creates a file which has the ability to keep track of the keys you press on the keyboard, making password security a concern.

With this in mind, now would be a good time to update your Anti-Virus definitions
