Email worm on the loose?

Anyone else seeing just a ton of emails with attachments named either wicked_scr.scr, thank_you.pif, details.pif, application.pif or others today? I’ve seen these hit our work email accounts, my personal accounts, my wife’s work email, and others just in the last few hours. Our ISP seems to be stripping the attachments on our work accounts, and I’m not dumb enough to open them on my personal accounts, but I haven’t seen any news items on these. I also assume,. since I’ve seen some of them bounce back to those emails, that the worm is forging the “from” field as well.

Update: Wait, found a news story on it. Looks like the return of SoBig!
