Systems Affected:

W32.Taz@mm is a worm written in Visual Basic. The worm can spread using mIRC, Pirch, and Microsoft Outlook. However, to function, this worm requires the Msbvm60.dll file. This is not a standard system file, and it is therefore not likely that this worm will execute on most Windows systems.
