Another Windows virus. This one spreads via email and via Kazaa. It opens up your system, probably for remote access. It also has code to DDoS SCO. I honestly don’t really care about that stuff, but I keep getting virus spam from this. Some are viruses being sent to me, others are error messages from mail servers that received mail with my address forged as the sender. Both are annoying.

Do an online virus scan and/or update your virus scanner. http://pctech.invisibill.net/virusinfo.html It’s a little outdated, but it has most of the major AV vendors, as well as some free options.
