      BE CAREFUL

      A new variant of the polymorphic worm Magistr is
      spreading fast on the Internet. This new variant is
      called Magistr.B.

      Magistr.B, when triggered, will overwrites hard drives
      with junk value, will erase CMOS and BIOS on the
      infected system (something like the dangerous CIH
      virus) thereby rendering the computer unusable.

      Magistr.B arrives as an email with the following
      information:
      Subject: [random]
      Body: [random]
      Attachment: [random file with an exe, bat, pif, com
      extension]

      And then searches for all sent email addresses from
      Eudora, Outlook, Netscape Messenger and other Internet
      email clients, and sends messages to up to 100 people.


      It also bypasses Microsoft�s Outlook Security Patch
      and will infect files on all shared network resources.

      CHEERS
