[Esa-l] New worm?

I just received an odd message that emanated from a dial-up
account in Russia. The headers looked like this:

Note that there was no "From:" header -- a sure sign that something
very odd was going on. There was also an attachment with the name


Anyone know what this is? The MIME boundary fits the pattern for
Hybris, and the string HYBRIS appears early in the binary, so
I'm assuming that this is a Hybris variant. But John's sanitizer didn't 
quarantine the message. Fortunately, most of our users aren't foolish 
enough to open up an attachment that doesn't even say who it's from....
