    posted for your information.

    Kaspersky Lab, a leading security content management has detected a number of variants of Email-Worm.Win32.Bagle. These new Bagles are new variants of the same malware, but packed differently. One thing they all have in common is that they don't self-replicate. In other words, these are so-called intended variants, not fully functional versions. However, somewhat paradoxically, we've seen large numbers of them during the course of the day. The reason is that they have all been mass-mailed out deliberately as spam.

    the above was found here. http://www.neowin.net/

    further details on the bug are here.
