Hi folks,

"It comes in an email that looks like it's from Microsoft, and is
disguised as a Microsoft Internet Security Update with an attachment.
IT LOOKS VERY REAL. It includes the link that makes it look like it's
going to Microsoft's site. If activated, it places a trojan backdoor
in the infected system. Remember, Microsoft never send emails with
updates attached."

Does that sound familiar? It's a description of W32.Gibe@mm, which was
discovered March 4, 2002. Sounds like Swen/Gibe.F, doesn't it? I
wonder how many people got kicked by Darwin twice...
