"It's the third Mimail variation to come after us, except this one is trying to do more," said Steve Linford, founder of The Spamhaus Project. Apparently this reincarnation comes as an attachment offering naked photographs. Once infected, a follow-up e-mail is sent to the user stating that a CD containing child pornography will be delivered to their postal address. "These guys write trojan (viruses), they carry out DDOS attacks and they get their money through selling stolen credit cards and spamming," Linford said."
