I just caught an e-mail come into my inbox and straight into my deleted items that aroused my suspision

From: Hahaha
Subject: Snowhite & the Seven Dwarfs the REAL story!!!
Attachment:midgets.scr

Today, Snowhite was turning 18. The 7 Dwarfs always where very educated and
polite with Snowhite. When they go out work at mornign, they promissed a
*huge* surprise. Snowhite was anxious. Suddlently, the door open, and the Seven
Dwarfs enter...

It looked like virus to me so I checked at both Mcaffee & Symantec and established it contains the W95.Hybris a worm that spreads by email as an attachment to outgoing email messages.
