Bugbear Worm/trojan

I just got this as an attachment in a mail in my plusnet inbox.
Apparently it's spreading like wildfire so I thought I'd post this as a warning.

More info at:

I deleted it but downloaded a fix from Symantec(just in case). http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/w32.bugbear@mm.html

unfortunately it keeps crashing before it's finished scanning.

Hi maybe i'm a bit late,
before you run the Bugbear@mm finder from symantec
remember to switch off the computers 'system restore' then turn back on again after you have rebooted and scanned the second time.
