Yup it appears there is a new virus heading around the block.  I have not
received a copy of the virus as of yet, so I personally can't analyze it

Here is the little bit of information I have seen so far.  There has also
been a discussion on intrusions at incidents.com and
incidents at securityfocus.com about the new virus

And whereever the intrusions@ mailing list archive is (the link at
http://www.incidents.org/archive/ no longer seems to work, so time to go
fix that as well.

 Hope that helps you find some answers on the front end.
