  • Spam viruses

    If spam or viruses are not bad enough what about when they join forces.

    "Antivirus software companies are warning their customers about the appearance of at least one new version of the Bagle worm that doesn't try to spread but instead installs malicious remote monitoring software on systems it infects.
    The new Bagle variant, Bagle.BB, is spreading in massive spam e-mail campaigns, but it breaks with computer worm orthodoxy. Unlike earlier forms of Bagle, the new variant sends out e-mails with Trojan horse programs attached to them, as opposed to copies of the virus file. The new attack could be the first of more to come, as malicious hackers turn to spam and stealthy Trojan programs to evade detection, according to one antivirus expert."
