During the past few weeks, virus writers have come up with at least 6 new

moved to dynamic encrypted .ZIP files, then started using pictures to give
out the passwords, then started using encrypted .RAR files. The latest
trick, first announced this morning, is that they are now using the OBJECT
DATA exploit. With this, the virus isn't spread in the E-mail, so it can't
be detected. Worse, a user doesn't have to open an attachment for it to
