PETALING JAYA: Antivirus vendors said they have detected the appearance of new Q, R and S variants of the Bagle worm.
The most dangerous of the three is variant Q, which was spreading very rapidly, Panda Software Malaysia said in a statement last night.
Bagle.Q spreads via e-mail in a message with extremely variable characteristics. The e-mail message however does not include an attached file carrying the worm
Instead it uses a "carrier e-mail" method to bypass antivirus protection, said British security software vendor Sophos.
When you open a carrier e-mail, it attempts to exploit a vulnerability in Microsoft Outlook which automatically downloads Bagle.Q from the PC which sent you the "carrier" e-mail.
The downloaded copy of Bagle.Q is placed into your system folder with the name "directs.exe".

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
