    > This looks like the Bugbear worm which  "steals" email addresses from the
    address book of the infected computer. It is likely the latest variant which
    is doing a lot of damage.  It  attempts to disable anti-virus programs among
    other things.
    Indeed, my Norton Antivirus has been very active in auto-updates in the past
    two or three or days. It's caught a couple of Bugbear e-mails coming in, and
    I've had one hint that it might have missed a Bugbear that sent out messages
    before getting erased.
    Vigilance is in order.
