Some people at work have been hit by this, not me though cos I'm not a mug ;-)

If you get an MSN message from someone you know sending you a zip file and a message along the lines of "this is well funny, check this out".... quite obviously *DON'T* unzip the file and then run the dodgy looking .exe that's inside it.

The zip's called "X_0005_jpg.zip" and the file inside is "www.X_0005_jpg-msn.com".

If you run it it will spam itself to all your MSN contacts and lock your PC up so you can't warn them not to run the file ;-)

How fucking stupid are people...

You'd think they'd learn from "don't ever click on dodgy attachments in emails" wouldn't you.

Yup.
I guess it's a bit different if it's from a mate and it looks like they typed "check this out it's funny", but fuck me the .exe was dodgy as hell with jpg and www in the name :-/

I MSNed straight back asking my mate what the hell it was otherwise I wouldn't run it, but obviously they can't reply back because their computer is locked up ;-)
