Yup, this one's real. Symantec classifies it as hitting between 50 and
999 machines on 3-9 sites, with medium geographical distribution and
moderate threat containment. High damage. - it eats several system
and makes the system unusable, requiring a reboot. Apparently Norton
Antivirus will deal with it if you catch it before
you execute the .exe file.
