Hey there everyone,

I recieved a mysterious email this morning at 1728 GMT which had headers as follows:

Return-path: <hamish1 () voyager co nz>
Envelope-to: hamish1 () webhosting net nz
Delivery-date: Tue, 28 Jun 2005 05:22:44 +1200

As you can guess, I'm hamish1 () webhosting net nz This email contained no text, only an attachment called legs.zip, which Norton (fully updated to its' latest version and data files) did not detect any viruses in. Within the legs.zip file there is a file called ds-rwe.exe - this again was not detected as a virus. My girlfriend thought she would be smart and ran ds-rwe.exe, which gave me a memory overflow message for explorer.exe immidiately. Does anyone have any idea of what this might be, and also if it is a virus that has already been identified? If not, I am willing to pass it through to someone to take a look at in its' zip format. Otherwise if the effects cannot be reversed, I am afraid I will have to reformat this machine *sigh* NOT AGAIN :(
Have a great day everyone and thanks in advance for your help.

Kindest of regards,
