Subject: Potentially new Virus

Hi Andrew,
The message body does ring a bell, but I don't remember what the virus is. I
searched many different anti-virus vendor sites and googled.
Which brings me to this question: why is it so damn hard for us to search
for info on viruses by subject, msg body, or/and symptoms???
It gets really frustrating when you recognize certain characteristics of a
virus but can't search for them!!

Is there a service I'm unaware of?

Thanks

Mike

Has anyone come across a virus with the following message body and
attached a file called 'Private.zip' which unzips to wendynaked.jpg.exe

I couldn't find any info on Symantecs security response site or Google
either.

Message Body:

----- Start ---
Hello my dear Mary,

I have been thinking about you all night. I would like to apologize for
the other night when we made beautiful love and did not use condoms. I
know this was a mistake and I beg you to forgive me.

I miss you more than anything, please call me Mary, I need you. Do you
remember when we were having wild sex in my house? I remember it all
like it was only yesterday. You said that the pictures would not come
out good, but you were very wrong, they are great. I didn't want to show
you the pictures at first, but now I think it's time for you to see
them. Please look in the attachment and you will see what I mean.

I love you with all my heart, James.

Andrew

(6)  It is easier to move a problem around (for example, by moving
         the problem to a different part of the overall network
         architecture) than it is to solve it.

         (6a) (corollary). It is always possible to add another level of
              indirection.
