Aparently it reads the names of other recipients e-mails in your in box... as the person who sent it to me (a friend of my mothers) while known by me has never corresponded

Many folks take a peek at the file as it appears to be from a trusted sender, and appears to bear the name of www.myparty.yahoo.com
the attachment is a virus!

It apparently is trashing some European and corporate computers.

I've recieved two copies of this today. I don't open any attatchments unless the sender has notified me ahead of time they are sending me an attatchment.

Usually, if I can't recognize the sender, I delete it without opening.

That's what is sneaky about this one: the sender is usally someone you do know, and the subject line in the attachement reading 'www.yahoo' it looks legit.

I got two copies 12 minutes apart.
