McAfee information on this massively spammed variant
Multiple new variants of this threat were recently mass spammed. Filenames include 1.cpl and price.cpl and may arrive in a ZIP file named newprice.zip , price_09.zip, price some number.zip , etc
The variants seen thus far are non functional, and deemed a low risk. The first such variant drops a corrupt file (ceeweewe.exe) to the %windir%. The corrupt file is detected as W32/Bagle.dam. Detection will be enhanced in the 4580 DAT release to detect and delete these newly discovered damaged variants. This is a generic detection covering many variants of the W32/Bagle@MM virus when sent in "CPL" format.
