There is a new mass mailing worm called Banwarum (also known as Zasran and Ranchneg) that is using World Cup themed email messages. The worm sends itself as a password protected archive and includes in the email the password for it. The emails sent by the worm are in German and some of them offer tickets for the football games in Germany next month.

W32.Banwarum@mm is a mass-mailing worm that uses its own SMTP engine to send an email to addresses that it gathers from the compromised computer. The worm also spreads through the network by exploiting the Microsoft Windows ASN.1 Library Bit String Processing Variant Heap Corruption Vulnerability (as described in Microsoft Security Bulletin MS04-007). The worm also opens a back door via HTTP access.
