Virus in Yahoo Mails!!!

I have recieved a few emails in my bulk yahoo mail from service@yahoo.com, info@yahoo.com and register@yahoo.com . All of them were with Subject You have successfully updated your password and attachment file with name account_password.zip or something like this.Here is the message:

Dear user toshev_bg,

If you did not authorize this change or if you need assistance with your account, please contact Yahoo customer service at: register@yahoo.com

After recieveing about 5-6 such mails I decided to see what is inside, I was sure that this was not a new password because I haven’t change mine.And here what is the result – new Virus which is not exactly detected:
