After skipping over the Easter holiday, the crew behind the Zhelatan Worm decided to pump and dump their spam for April Fool's Day.

The latest filenames being kickme.exe, foolsday.exe and funny.exe.

When executed the files "aromis.exe" and "aromis.config" are created in the windows directory.

Watch out for emails with subjects that contain 'Happy All Fool's Day" or anything about "April Fool's Day" or " All Fool's Day" Remember not to open email from people you do not know and definitely not to follow links in them.
