Zafi.D virus: Christmas wishes and a computer virus!

Posted on Wednesday, December 15 2004 @ 13:33:25 CET by

Please be aware as there's a new virus worm spreading on the net. The Zafi.D variant is a Christmas wish e-mail together with a .zip file containing malicious code.

Zafi.D is a mass-mailing worm that arrives in a .zip file attached to e-mail messages with the subject "Merry Christmas." Instead of a gift, however, the e-mail package delivers worm code that infects Microsoft Windows systems on which it is opened. Leading antivirus companies, including McAfee, Sophos, and Computer Associates issued warnings about the new worm and updated antivirus signatures to stop the new threat.

In addition to the Christmas well wishes in the subject line, Zafi-generated e-mails contain the message "Happy Hollydays" and are signed "Jaime." More info here

More technical details about this virus can be found at Symantec.
