LOL I am the one that these worms usually attack!! This one is working just 
like Klez. I got 250+ of those. That doesn't count the emails that came 
100+ times with the FROM address from me. All it takes is one person to 
open the attachment and the race is on!! Fortunately, I know better than to 
open them and my AV catches everything. How it happened to me was I visited 
a site for drywall tools, they opened the attachment, I was in their 
address book, the virus put me in every other person's address book who 
opened it. At some point, the virus started making it look as though I were 
sending it, this is written in the script. For some reason, Thank the email 
God, no one I know has opened this one yet. And I do mean YET. LOL I expect 
it though!!
