Virus attacking AutoCAD users

There are new reports of malicious code spreading through the spurious file ACAD.VLX. It seems to use the same mechanism as the older virus hidden in the ACAD.FAS file (both VLX and FAS are compiled LISP files).

This LISP virus writes random texts to your DWG files and it tries to spread itself by modifying the automatially loaded files like acad2010.lsp or acad.mnl.

Antivirus software should now check also the AutoCAD LISP files (some software already does this).
