This worm is considered a medium/level 3 threat due to prevalence.
Currently Symantec has not identified this worm, so has not published
information or virus definitions to detect or disinfect Bagle.az. I will
update the list with more information as it becomes available. For now,
please be advised to avoid opening attachments meeting the above
criteria as well as any attachments you were not specifically expecting
until confirming legitimacy of the attachment with its sender.
Questions or problems regarding W32/Bagle.az@mm should be directed to
CIT Helpline at [log in to unmask] or 6-2604, or to your department's IT
staff if applicable.
