New `Pretty Park' virus in the wild

A variant of last year’s “Pretty Park” virus is said to be spreading quickly, and has infected computers on a dozen corporate and government networks.

According to antivirus firm Network Associates, the Trojan horse virus does not delete or alter any files. Instead, it appears as an e-mail attachment named “prettypark.exe” with an icon of Kyle, one of the “South Park” TV series characters. Those who open it simply see an image of Kyle, while in the background the program begins sending the attachment to everyone in their address book every 30 minutes.
