BlackWorm (MyWife.d), Severity: High Risk

BlackWorm is a new and potentially destructive Internet worm currently making its way around the globe. It is infecting users via e-mail and is scheduled to destroy all Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF, PSD and ZIP files on Feb. 3. Open emails from strangers cautiously and be careful with the attachments. Update your antivirus right now.

W32.Blackmal.E@mm is a mass-mailing worm that attempts to spread through network shares and lower security settings. On the third day of every month it attempts to rewrite files with certain extensions with custom text. This attempts to send itself as an email to the addresses it gathers using its own SMTP engine.
