Pretty Park worm
I have just received an email from someone who has the PrettyPark worm on
their machine. It sent me the attachment, although I did not execute it, of
course (for a start I am using a Mac). It also tried to send itself to the
killietalk list. This worm works like the Happy99 worm, by mining your
email address book and sending itself to those addresses.
I suggest that everyone looks on their hard disk for Pretty Park. See
The usual warning, do NOT execute .exe files that you receive as
attachments unless you know what they are and first check them for viruses.
