Please be careful when opening. The zip file contains an executable,
and I would assume it is some kind of virus or worm.
Has anyone else seen something similar?

Yeah, this looks like one I've got yesterday too.
The message was different and even the password was different (clever
virus-writer huh). I bet it is a Bagle.Gen-zippwd (who gives them names
actually?) sort of worm, but am not sure.
I dare not to open it at all. At least my ClamAssassin fetched it and
sorted it into my Virus folder. This means that ClamAV (for Linux)
recognizes it as a worm/virus
Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
I Suspect that it is a targetted long term attack
against higher targets
see the one below from march 3,2004
I saw this one the other day
I thought the guys I hosted with wrote better english
Suspicious fromthe start
