    Symantec finds new worm with ‘Here you have’ e-mails
    A new worm is spreading quickly over e-mail, instant messaging, and shared disks and folders on the local network, sometimes using the subject heading "Here you have."
    A new malicious worm is being spread through e-mails with the subject line, “Here you have,” said security giant Symantec on its Security Response blog. The Security Response team is actively monitoring the threat.
    The e-mail asks the recipient to click on a link embedded in the message. Disguised as a PDF file, this link points to a malicious program file online. When the user clicks on this link, the program file is downloaded and executed, installing the worm on the computer. The Security Response team identified the worm as W32.Imsolk.B@mm, and noted it may disable antivirus products, so the user remains unaware of the attack. W32.Imsolk.B@mm is also known as W32/Autorun-BHO by Sophos, W32/VBMania@MM by McAfee, and WORM_MEYLME.B by Trend Micro.

    Until adobe patches this, it is best to not open any PDF's. This is a nasty one.

    'Here You Have' Virus E-Mail Spreads Online - ABC News

    Organizations including NASA, Comcast, AIG, Disney, Proctor & Gamble, Florida Department of Transportation and Wells Fargo are just a few of the organizations apparently affected by the worm, which appears to have sent out hundreds of thousands, if not millions of e-mails.
    On Friday, the Atlanta-based security firm SecureWorks said it found a possible link between the worm attack and a cyber-jihad organization called "Brigades of Tariq ibn Ziyad".
    Watch the abc video.
