We received several reports of spam containing Subject lines such as: “Sweetest Things Aren’t Things!, Valentine’s Day, The Love Train” and other similar subject lines. These all included a URL that just an IP Address. Those URLs lead to binaries named valentine.exe. The MD5 on the binaries is changing rapidly so AV detection based on MD5 or other hash values is not reliable.
We submitted one version to virustotal. 12/31 of the av engines there recognized it. Valentine.exe is a new version of storm worm. Thanks to contributors Doug, Colin, Susan.
Jose Nazario of Arbornetworks has some additional about this at: http://asert.arbornetworks.com/2008/02/new-storm-valentines-day-campaign/
