  Our Barracuda spam/virus firewall has been blocking these.
I think it's the latest Mytob installment, and Norton *should*
have a signature for it.

Hey there everyone,

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

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,
