I'm not the poster, nor can I provide the virus; however, the author
of the virus posted the binary on bugtraq (...I think) a day or two
ago. I didn't save it as I couldn't really do anything with it, but it
should be available in the archive (somewhere at <URL:http://>), if it's up-to-date. Also, I'm sure there are
people on this list who read bugtraq, and some of them probably have
the virus.
