Sophos's global network of virus, spyware and spam analysis centers, have warned users about a new variant of the Bagle Trojan horse which has been spammed out to internet users. Sophos is advising users to ensure their anti-virus protection is up-to-date to protect against attacks.

Sophos has received reports of the Troj/BagleDl-AN Trojan horse being spammed out in emails as a ZIP file attachment containing a malicious file called S3700020.EXE. Some emails have been seen containing the message body "New Year's Day", but the hacker could send the malware out using different email characteristics.
