This seems to be the culprit:

Concept Virus(CV) V.5, Copyright(C)2001  R.P.China

I've nailed a copy, and am working on getting it to the right security
people.  A *PRELIMINARY* (eyeballing the output of 'strings' indicates that
this one *both* sends itself via-email a la SirCam, *AND* scans for vulnerable
web servers, and if it finds a vulnerable server, it causes anybody visiting
that webpage to be offered a contaminated .exe as well.

I do *NOT* have a handle on what malicious effects it has other than just
propagating.

This one's nasty, folks...
