The virus in question is Bugbear. It's frontpage news on
www.symantec.com. The annoying thing about this worm is that it kills
antivirus programs. A removal tool can be found on www.symantec.com.

It's polluting the atari-midi mailinglist as well, only there we haven't
found out yet who it's coming from. Btw, as far as I can see, it's not
directly an Outlook worm but a Windoze addressbook worm.  Then again, I
think only Outlook uses that. :)
