Brief Description 

    

MyParty is a worm that arrives hidden in an e-mail attachment called WWW.MYPARTY.YAHOO.COM. The subject of the message that carries this attachmentis the following: New photos from my party!.

The text of the message attempts to dupe users into running the attachment, by making them believe it is just a link to a website with photographs.

Upon running the attachment, MyParty does not cause damage to affected computers. However, it sends itself out to all the contacts in the Address Book, as well as to the addresses obtained from the affected computer’s e-mail folders.

It is interesting to note that MyParty will only send itself out to other users providing the operating system is in English.

Visible Symptoms
