The Trojan is back.

Just got this from Symantec.

Symantec Security Response is currently monitoring a massive surge of email spam containing the threat Trojan.Peacomm (also known as the Storm Trojan). This spam surge is one of the largest identified surges in the last several months. This threat was originally discovered in January 2007 but has been repackaged in this particular spam surge. The specific characteristics of this attack have continued to evolve over time and this is simply the latest example of the attackers attempting to compromise large numbers of unprotected systems. This trojan horse arrives as an attachment to an email purporting to contain a security patch. The email appears to warn the user about a malicious threat and implies that the file attachment is a security patch that will protect the user from this threat. However, the attachment itself is a malicious threat.

The email may have one of the following subject lines:


Worm Detected!
[UNABLE TO SCAN] Worm Detected!
[WARNING - ENCRYPTED ATTACHMENT NOT VIRUS SCANNED] Virus Alert!
[WARNING - ENCRYPTED ATTACHMENT NOT VIRUS SCANNED] Worm Detected!

[ATTENTION - NON TRAIT? PAR ANTIVIRUS -- WARNING - NOT VIRUS SCANNED]%s
