new worm

from the site the
Experts at SophosLabs, Sophos's global network of virus, spyware and spam analysis centers, have warned users to be wary of unsolicited emails claiming to contain obscene pictures and sex movies. The W32/Nyxem-D worm (also known as or W32.Blackmal.E@mm) can spread via email using a variety of pornographic disguises, in an attempt to disable security software. If launched it tries to disable a number of anti-virus and firewall products, and attempts to harvest other email addresses from the infected computer, in an effort to spread itself further.
