Love is in the air Posted by Katrin @ 18:20 GMT

Two days ago we got Bagle.FY that arrives in email messages related to the Olympic games in Torino. Yesterday one more variant Bagle.FZ appeared - similar to an older version. Today one more just arrived - one late Bagle for Valentine's day.

The worm sends itself in messages with various subjects like this one:

Will You Be My Valentine?

Two of the three texts that it shows are love poems written by the American poet Robert Frost and the third is written by the Argentinean poet Juan Manuel Perez. The worm shows these poems on a background of Valentine's pictures.

Enough about love, it is time to land and update the database to protect your computers. What you need to detect Bagle.GA is FSAV update version number 2006-02-15_03
