New Bagle variant seen in the wild
Antivirus software companies late Thursday and early Friday began warning e-mail users that the persistent Bagle virus has re-emerged in a new version, Bagle.AF or Beagle.AB.
The virus comes in the form of a password-protected .zip file and has the password included in the message body as plain text or within an image. According to antivirus company F-Secure Corp. of Helsinki, Bagle.AF has quite similar functionality to Bagle.Z, which appears to indicate that the author of Bagle.AF had Bagle.Z's source code.
