We’ve received an inquiry regarding an email message circulating the net about a worm that targets Hotmail, “which would cause heavy losses to company users when they log on to their Hotmail accounts to receive e-mails.”
The email quotes the Tianjin-based National Computer Virus Emergency Response Center as the source of this information, which, btw, we’ve already contacted. But for now, it’s sleeping-time in China, so updates tomorrow on this alleged Hotmail worm.
P.S. I’m not sure if they are referring to WORM_ATOMICKS.A

And quite surprisingly (or not), they were in fact referring to WORM_ATOMICKS.A.The latest OPR 297 can detect them as WORM_ATOMICKS.A.
