It generated some "over-quota" on my personal Yahoo mailbox. 
It seems to be spreading fast but not as big as SOBIG.F ...
BTW this worm is called SVEN (WORM_SWEN.A or w32.swen.a at mm)
by some virus vendors :

Update your list of viruses (regex) that fake sender addresses : like 
SOBIG, NIMDA, KLEZ don't send sender notifications for infected messages 
by this new worm.
