I agree with what shane mentioned and was hopping a more specific signature
that look into the payload. I mean if the virus is been caught and someone
found out that the payload contains certain sequence of values that identify
this worm.

I would strongly discourage this rule to catch Klez, NetSky or any
virus, for that matter.  Running the string through some archived
mail, I'm seeing lots of false positives, particularly in (legitimate)
word documents.

I'll see what I can do to come up with something that reduces false
