I am getting these too, it sounds like "W32/Swen.A" or "W32/Gibe.F". see
www.cert.org and you can get it just from being in a mailing list.

I suppose these could be filtered easily enough but the real problem is the
data has already passed the ISP and has to be paid for. Does anyone know a
way to block these without paying? I have searched around but find nothing
except how to clean the infected win machines. Many of these eamils carry a
142k attachment.
