Subject: "My Party" Worm

*SIGH* Can we not go a week without a new worm going around on the web? The least that these script-kiddies could do is something creative instead of the usual auto-email forwarder. In this round, we have the "My Party" worm which spreads by "infiltrating popular email software Microsoft Windows Address Book and Outlook Express Database" *GASP*.

The virus arrives as an email with the subject line ``new photos from my party!'' It contains an innocuous looking file attachment called www.myparty.yahoo.com.

A message in the body of the email reads: ``Hello! 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!'
End of line...
