Anna Kournikova Virus Causing Chaos

 

A new face added to an old virus has been causing problems with thousands of computers around the world. The virus is an e-mail labeled "Hi, Check This!" and then appears to have a jpg picture of Anna.

However as soon as it is opened it mails itself off to all addresses in the receivers address book. The virus appears to be spreading as quickly as last years love bug.

One security expert said "It's an old virus concept but you put a pretty face and a nice pair of legs on it and people open it."
