[IP] Really Nasty Virus Alert - Reezak

Warning: please do not open any e-mail attachments called Christmas.exe!

Reezak is a new mass-mailer  worm that offers New Year's greetings and what 
appears to be a holiday-related animation.  It is spreading in the United 
States and Europe. "This virus has the following characteristics:

>Subject: Hii
>I can't describe my feelings
>But all i can say is
>Happy New Year :)
>Attachment: Christmas.exe

If you open the attachment, the worm uses your Internet Explorer start page 
to attack any local network via network shares, then deletes common 
antivirus programs and large portions of your operating system.

Symantec's Norton Anti-virus has published updated datafiles today. Network 
Associates' McAfee VirusScan and NetShield do not have updated datafiles 
yet, but probably soon will.
