Zafi virus disables firewalls and AV software

A new version of the Zafi virus has emerged, titled 'W32.Zafi.B'. One of it's features is that it can kill personal firewalls and antivirus programs in order to help itself spread.

It spreads itself via email, using various '.pif', '.exe' and '.com' attachments. Once it infects a machine, it harvests addresses from the address book on the system, and emails itself to those users. It also disables programs such as the task manager and the registry editor.

So, don't trust any attachments that come via email, and ensure your antivirus software is up to date!
