A new worm in the wild is spreading using MSN Messenger. Dubbed Bropia.A, this worm spreads itself by files claiming to be files such as love_me.pif, drunk_lol.pif, etc, with promises of rude or funny contents. Aren't people such suckers? Just watch you don't fall for it.

F-Secure said that contacts are harvested from client machines by snooping on MSN windows using Windows hooks.

The worm also throws backdoor software, a variant of Rbot, on infected machines. This copies itself as LEXPLORE.EXE

The zombie logs keystrokes, harvests system information, and generally makes a nuisance of itself.
