I received a copy yesterday of Hybris, an amazingly sophisticated Internet worm that arrives as a Windows .EXE file in e-mail, takes over WSOCK32.DLL and updates itself via encrypted plug-ins posted to the Usenet group alt.comp.virus by other Hybris-infected computers. Norton Anti-Virus flagged the file for deletion as it arrived in my Eudora mailbox.
