Re: New Virus?

I would run the .exe in question through the Virus Total Scanner.

Virustotal offers a free service for scanning suspicious files using
several antivirus engines.

Good Luck!

Hey there everyone,

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

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,
