I received an email via the SeeSat list, which contained as an
attachment the Internet email worm "Pretty Park.exe".

I imagine that all other list members will get it too.  If you do, I
strongly suggest you delete the email!  Running the program will cause
it to spread.


According to the headers, the email was sent originally by:

  "Izak Marais" <imarais@doc.pwv.gov.za>

but more likely it was sent automatically by this person's infected
computer.  The subject is: "C:\CoolProgs\Pretty Park.exe".
