New Warezov Virus

F-Secure is reporting a new Warezov variant that spreads with a clever bit of social engineering. Here's an excerpt from the e-mail being sent:

Our robot has fixed an abnormal activity from your IP address on sending e-mails. Probably it is connected with the last epidemic of a worm which does not have patches at the moment. We recommend you to install a firewall module and it will stop e-mail sending. Otherwise your account will be blocked until you do not eliminate malfunction.

If you receive an e-mail like this, do not open the attachment. Get the full details from the F-Secure blog.
