Thursday we observed a new worm that started to spread over Internet by emailing the address books of infected PC. The email contains the subject line as “Here you have” or “Just for you” and contains a link to a file which seems to be a PDF file.
The email when received in inbox looks as below:
Subject: Here you have (sometimes it is “Just for you”)
This is the document I told you about, you can find it
here. https://xxx. x..x
Please check it and reply as soon as possible.
The link in the email does not actually points to a PDF, but instead points to a script that infects the computer with the new worm once, the user agrees to install the file. Once the worm infects the computer it will propagate by sending itself to all the emails in the contact list.
The worm has supposedly hit some of the major company networks in US that include ABC, Disney, Coca Cola etc. as reported by MSN NEWS.
The worm is simple email worm which can be easily detected and mitigated by having updated Quick Heal protection on the PC.
