I've seen over 20 of these just today, about a dozen yesterday - and every time I check my e-mail, I have more and more. I figured they were viruses, and haven't touched them yet, but I did try scanning - nothing's detecting them yet

I expect to see several hundred more over the next week.

Most of them are coming as "document.zip" attachments or some other erratic name - a good sign it's a virus.

If you have Ad-Aware 6 build 181, the new update as of last night does recognizes it. Once you run it shut down and reboot to remove the remainder of the files.

Norton flagged them as viruses the moment they hit my inbox. I use the corporate edition with definitions from the morning of the 27th.
