Bagle.Y pictures Posted by Mikko @ 21:22 GMT

So the latest Bagle variant tries to fool users into clicking the attachment by sending messages with contents such as:

I am a honest, kind,loving,with good sense of humor...etc.,looking for true love... or maybe for pen friend.I like cats

And these messages include a JPEG picture of a girl - and another attachment which is actually the virus. The infectious attachment might have a cherry icon.

The virus contains three different pictures of girls, most likely taken from some dating site. The pictures are shown here blurred, as these girls obviously have nothing to do with the virus.
