Napster loses

A virus contained in an attachment labeled as a photo of Russian tennis star Anna Kournikova is spreading twice as fast the famous Love Bug did. The worm, a virus with the ability to mail itself to other users, is contained in an attachment “AnnaKournikova.jpg.vbs” with a message with one of three subject lines: “Here you are ;-),” “Here you have ;o)” and “Here you go ;-).” It uses Visual Basic to infect Windows systems and then uses Microsoft’s Outlook e-mail program to mail itself to the entire address book. It does not damage infected systems but could seriously overload mail servers.
