I've just received an email that my anti-virus detected a virus in an attachment to. The virus was identified as "W32.Beagle.AV@mm"

I suppose the Plus.net anti-virus can't be 100% effective and it just shows you an anti-virus programme on your pc is still essential.

Be sure to raise a ticket to tell them. This usually happens when a fragment of the virus attachment gets through and has been previously dealt with. But it hasnt happened to me with a 'Beagle' so they should be told.

That is a new varient of the virus, but in theory should have been detected.

Does it look like this: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/3965721.stm (this mentions Bagle.AU so your Bagle.AV may be an even newer variant)

Cold be the new Bagle virus going around which the plusnet scanners may not have been updated to detect yet. This new one is spreadng very quickly and has a hgh security rating.

[append]

This is the very latest bagle virus (there is a .AW variant already) so I suspect the plusnet scanner does not detect it yet but should do within a few hours.

It does look like the one the Beeb mention.

W32/Mabutu-A. Sophos kindly picked it up for me. Subject Line was "Im Nude".

I've received several e-mails infected with what Norton 2004 calls W32.Netsy.P@mm, contained in *scr, *.zip & *.doc attachments, from ( probably spoofed) Hotmail addresses.

Ticket has been raised, but unfortunately Norton automatically deletes the headers, so I'm unable to send them to CS for investigation.
