Short notice about email worm

This is just a short notice on the VB email worm which got some media attention last Friday. Avira detects the malware as TR/Swisyn.algm with the VDF update 7.10.11.121 from last week; on Friday, we renamed the worm to Worm/Swisyn.algm with VDF version 7.10.11.124. Thus users of Avira anti-malware solutions are protected from the threat.
