I just found an e-mail in my yahoo account which appeared to be from their administrator. The message subject is:
"Your email account is suspended for security reasons" It contains the following message:
"Please look at the attached document"
The e-mail is 60kb in size, the attachment, named info_text.zip is 44kb and contains an executable file.
The attached "document" is infected. Yahoo's AV, Norton, identifies it as W32.Mydoom.BT@mm.
AntiVir indentifies it as Worm/Mytob.UV
BitDefender calls it Suspect Backdoor.SDBot.F3F49EC8
Anyone getting this e-mail, your account is NOT suspended.
Rick
