I know of a few associates who have been infected (on home networks) but according to them (I have yet to verify) not via e-mail. These folks are running Windows XP Pro with Norton AV & Personal firewall. Microsoft update is running as well. Systems continuously reboot by RPC with a one minute countdown, even when disconnected from the network. Again, I have yet to get hands-on to the systems to do more research. Hope that bit helps.
