Anyone else get hit by this attack this morning?  We got it pretty good…

At the time we started seeing it it wasn't being detected, but now the AV's are catching up.

Yeah, we've gotten a few hits for it here. Mostly it's being stripped. Isabelle Graham Information Security American University
Yup, we got about a hundred (all blocked) mixed in with seven real scans from Xerox machines.  Fortunately, most of our real Xerox scanners have been locally customized to include the sending office name, a real sender address, a real machine location (included in the body) and a customized message body that includes contact information for the office that owns the scanner.  So, our recipients tend to be a little more skeptical of the default message format.
