Secunia has just declared MEDIUM RISK on Kelvir.B and Symantec also shows a high prevelance of this worm. The Spybot version dropped as a part of a "two-in-one" virus is more damaging than the Kelvir worm in an unpatched corporate network. W32.Kelvir.B is a worm that spreads through Windows Messenger and MSN Messenger and attempts to download and execute a variant of W32.Spybot.Worm.
