GFI discovers the 'Romeo and Juliet' Virus.
The 'Romeo and Juliet' Virus spreads through an HTML e-mail message, containing an executable file called 'My Romeo' and a compiled help file (.chm) called 'My Juliet'. It takes advantage of a vulnerability in Internet Explorer that executes the compiled help file without warning the user, and then sends copies of itself by e-mail using known open-relay mail servers. In order to block this Virus it is recommended to filter incoming mail containing .chm files as attachment.

"SONIC" WORM AND BACKDOOR
A multipart worm named Sonic is now in the wild. The worm spreads through an e-mail attachment, under either of the following names: Girls.exe, or Lovers.exe. When the attachment is opened, then the first part of the Trojan install itself to Windows' startup, with the name GDI32.EXE. It then activates, and contacts a predefined web address, to download the worm's latest version and then install it to the affected computer. It's the download that contains the main part of the worm, including the mailer. This part also contains a backdoor that provides hackers with limited control on the remote PC.
