Spamvertised malware spreading fast

Hackers are trying to trick prospective marks into loading malware that poses as a "beta" version of Internet Explorer 7.

Widely circulated emails, which pose as messages from [email protected] and feature subject lines such as "Internet Explorer 7 Downloads", display an image which invites gullible users to download beta 2 of Internet Explorer 7. Users who click on the authentic-looking image download a file called ie7.0.exe infected by the Grum-A worm.
