This is a special alert from The Funny/Alerts Newsletter. We have a new worm on the radar. Get right over to your Anti-Virus vendor and make sure that you have the latest signatures. You wouldn't want me to do a Reply-To-All on one of your emails now, would you?

This non-destructive, memory-resident variant of WORM_FRETHEM.A propagates via Microsoft Outlook, and arrives in an email message with the following:
