New Email Worm 'My Party' Surfaces, Begins to Grow
LONDON (Reuters) - A new computer bug that tries to trick
computer users into clicking on a virus-infected Web
link masquerading as party photos emerged in Asia on
Monday morning and began spreading to Europe,
computer experts said.
The so-called ``My Party'' worm, which is not
considered destructive, spreads by infiltrating
popular email software Microsoft Windows Address
Book and Outlook Express Database.
The worm emails itself to every person in an
infected users' email log making it look as
if the worm comes from a colleague or friend, experts said
The actual virus wording from A
technical Virus Mailing List that I subscribe to:
Subject: new photos from my party!
"My party... It was absolutely amazing!
I have attached my web page with new photos!
If you can please make color prints of my photos. Thanks!"
So just do an AV update today and you'll be allright
