I am sorry to tell you that one of our mail-server was infected by W32.MFG.Tassos@mm. I had this Virus on my PC. You may be have received this virus if you read or send any mail the last 9 days. A infection is only possible on windows systems. The virus would be detected by NAV if you have the latest definition list. Infected mails seems to be clean, but they run a pernicious local windows-script that modifies or deletes the rundll32.exe and the aspi4.dll. It also modifies some registry entries. This virus makes copys of his sefl till your harddrive is totally full. Any mail can be infected. After cleaning your system, install the latest Definition list from symantec. The virus reads your Outlook-contacts, and will be sended to any one of them, if there is an e-mail address registered.
