FWIW. Neither McAfee or Symantec has this variant listed as yet.
TrendLabs has received numerous infection reports of this malware spreading in Korea and Japan.
This new BAGLE variant is capable of infecting files. It propagates via email in two ways. The first is by sending emails,
which do not have an attachment. Instead it contains a link, which upon opening the email, starts a series of events that
eventually downloads this file infector into the system. The second is that the email may contain varying subjects,
message bodies, and attachment file names, just like its earlier variants.
