Caveat q*uech*up

I would like to warn everyone that there is a nasty spamming worm making its way through the cyberworld. The way it works is as follows:
  • You get a message: "Invitation from Xoloitzquintle".
  • When you open it, it sends out a message from you with the same invitation.
  • The invitation is to a "social networking site" that really is some crappy dating service in Britain.
I, unfortunately, fell victim to this stupid trick and had to send out a warning to everyone who had ever corresponded with (I use Gmail and it keeps all that info), some of which are quite important and influential people.

This is a stress I don't really need right now.
