**VIRUS Advisory - W32/Badtrans@MM and W32/Matcher@MM**

Dear McAfee.com Dispatch Subscriber:

The incidence of the following 2 MEDIUM-RISK viruses has
been rising over the last several days. McAfee.com recommends
that you scan your system to check for infection.

1. W32/Badtrans@MM is a mass-mailing worm that spreads via
the email program MS Outlook. This worm creates an Outlook
object that sends an infected document as a reply to all
unread email messages. If the attachment is opened, the worm
displays a message box:

Title: Install error

Message: File data corrupt: probably due to a bad data
transmission or bad disk access.

Once running, the Trojan attempts to mail the victim's IP
Address to the author. When this information is obtained,
the author can connect to the infected system via the Internet
and steal personal information such as usernames, and passwords.
In addition, the Trojan is capable of capturing other vital
information such as credit card and bank account numbers.

2. W32/Matcher@MM is a mass-mailing worm that spreads via MS

Once running, the program attempts to email itself to everyone
in the Outlook Address book repeatedly, until the worm is
removed from the system. The email message appears as follows:

Subject: Matcher

Body: Want to find your love mates!!! Try this its cool...
Looks and Attitude Maching to opposite sex.

Attachment: Matcher.exe
