Bad news for all the curious and unprotected: just got notified on my vipre/counterspy list that antivirXP09 is the latest iteration of this pest. Apparently it is happening both from web page drive by downloads and it has happened to a few people while opening their gmail account. I don't know yet if it was an attachment or what. Be careful out there.

Hi, Panic call from my Dad. He opened an email message that he thought was some kind of expose about a McCain ad. Apparently this email infected his machine with AntiVirXP08. A quick Google search indicates this program is a fake anti-virus program that lures people into buying it, while it installs spyware and other malware on their systems. Anyone here know about this thing?
