This appears to be the trojan W32/Bagle.dldr.  McAfee has been detecting it
since the 26th of June. Click on the link for more info.

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,
