You need the 4139 DAT. I had to download their daily untested yesterday
in order to "catch" the virus. 4139 was released last night, which
appears to be catching it.
Fortunately, SpamAssassin's baysean filter caught on soon enough, and at
least flagged a good portion as spam which should help deter any users
which got the attachment before I was able to update my DAT's myself.
