This is shared due to prevelance, as another major seeding of a new Agent downloader/rootkit variant has taken place. These may be showing up in our spam filters or in-boxes soon :thumbsup:

Agent.BRK - Avoid attachment BSAVER.ZIP
http://www.f-secure.com/weblog/archives/ar...7.html#00001236
http://www.f-secure.com/v-descs/trojan-dow...agent_brk.shtml

Trojan-Downloader:W32/Agent.BRK attempts to download and install other malware onto the affected system. The file is replaced with a copy of Rootkit.Win32.Agent.dp Furthermore, Trojan-Downloader:W32/Agent.BRK launches an instance of Microsoft Internet Explorer as a hidden process with its code injected into the process. This time the e-mail attachment is named as bsaver.zip.
