Virus disguised as response to craigslist “car for sale” ad

Security experts at Red Condor are warning email users about a new virus currently undetected by most virus scanners.

The virus is embedded in an email that appears to be a response to a craigslist advertisement.

The email containing the virus includes the subject line, “Re: Car For Sale on craigslist.” The email content suggests that the user requested pictures for a car being sold on craigslist and invites the recipient to view the images in a Picasa album. Clicking on the link to the album installs a virus.
