‘Here You Have’ Email Virus Strikes Google, NASA, And Others


The worm appears in e-mail messages with the subject “Here you have,” and contains what seems to be a link to an Adobe PDF file. In fact the link takes the victim to a Web page hosted on the members.multimania.co.uk domain that then tries to download a screensaver (.scr) file. If the user agrees to install that file, he is then infected by the worm, which mails itself to his e-mail contacts.

The worm is similar to the ILoveYou and Anna Kournikova worms, which spread in 2000 and 2001, and is a type of malware. This latest worm seems to do nothing more than send itself out, using the victim’s contact list. “It appears to be mailing itself to all of the mailing lists that are in someone’s contacts. It may also go to individuals,” The worm appeared to be affecting Outlook e-mail users, but it’s not clear if it is also affecting users of other mail programs.
