The sender address is spoofed, so users should be cautioned to open NO attachments they aren't expecting, even from people they trust.
what is the target ( apart from Doze in general of Price ..rogerd? )
All samples received so far arrive without subject. Attachment names are price2.zip, new__price.zip, 08_price.zip, and likely others. The text reads 'price' or 'new price'.
Nice catch Roger.
McAfee now calls it a medium threat, but it doesn't seem to be on the radar at Symantec yet.
Oh this viruses nowadays suck. I remember the first virus I ever had on my PC it seems like decades ago. It was called the Stoned Virus. And everytime the PC started it said something like: "Your PC is now stoned. Legalize Marijuana!"
At least it had some message... Ah the good old times...
The reason I ask is because my affiliate email address that I use to communicate with merchants is getting hammered by this, some looking like it came from the merchant, and, hmmm.. price.exe or variation would be something that an affiliate might want to open. Then again, it could be just strange luck that only the affiliate address has been hit.
