Worm spreads through KaZaA network, again...
SOURCE: -theregister.co.uk Virus watchers have discovered the latest in a line of viruses targeted at file sharing networks.
The Duload worm is spreading across the KaZaA file-exchange network, antivirus firm Kaspersky Labs warns today based on reports of infections from Italian internet users.
Duload appears as a Windows executable written in Visual Basic either 18432 bytes or, in its compressed form, 7680 bytes in size.

Thanks for the update there. So is it incorporated in other files you download or as an invidual file of either 18432 bytes or, in its compressed form, 7680 bytes in size?

My understanding is that it may be incorporated in some files that are downloaded with those particular file sizes. Not saying that all files from KaZzA within the specified file size will be infected, just be cautious of some that size, either compressed or not
