RE: New Virus?

Hi Hamish

I got the same emails yesterday also. I got about 3 of them though. The
attachments were called original.zip and the subject was either Is sent
SMS or The picture is sent on SMS
Our mail system removed the exe's in the zips for Dangerous attachments
inbound so I don't have the original files but nothing picked it up
either Nortons or Sophos.

Will be submitting to both for analysis. Will report back when I get a
result.

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,
