Microsoft's soon-to-release-to-consumers Vista, however, does appear at risk, added Symantec Tuesday. "It appears most if not all variants could execute on Vista," the spokesman said. "The only way the Trojan would be unsuccessful is if somehow Vista is able to detect/prohibit the e-mail. This seems unlikely."
A few fixes and suggestions have been posted, though up to date anti-virus scanners should be able to detect and remove it. Interestingly enough, the code of the worm is designed to specifically ignore Windows Server 2003, but will still target 2000 and XP machines.
