“Here You Have”- Virus on Email?

I will be writing this quick post, folks. Some online users are claiming that there’s a new computer virus spreading like a wildfire particularly in corporate networks, or probably in home networks.
The email is said to have a subject “Here you have” and give advise to the users to delete it. However, it’s believe to be a link bait; so to play safe, just ignore the message and don’t click any links within the email if ever you’ve got it.

I’ll be updating this post in the next few minutes or hours if this is really true or if this is just another hoax which is basically more difficult to stop than a real computer virus. Just check this post regularly. Stay tuned!

As you can see, there’s a URL within the content; but it doesn’t actually lead to a PDF file. It’s just a disguise to trigger an executable file. More info about the virus profile of such type can be found here.
