Open the attachment and you will see a fake error message saying that a portion of the WinZip software is missing. You will also infect your hard drive with two copies of the worm, which will sit in your Windows system folder and create several registry keys to ensure it will be run on startup. It will also search for e-mail addresses on the infected machine. It then begins mailing itself to all of the addresses it finds.
We recommend that you patch your system with the latest anti-virus definitions, and that you do not open attachments from any unknown or untrusted source.
