If you scan the attachment you'll know what sort of virus it contains. No doubt it will be a virus of some sort.

Which reminds me to send emails to all politicians with the text: FBI here, WE KNOW ABOUT IT. Turn yourself in!

The FBI is investigating the scam. Recipients of these e-mails are asked to report them by visiting the Internet Crime Complaint Center at http://www.ic3.gov.

This is a resurrection of:

W32.Sober@mm - a mass-mailing worm that uses its own SMTP engine to spread itself. The subject of the email varies, and it will be in either English or German.

To actually be infected, you have to open the zip file, decompress, and maybe even rn the program. Can't remmember the specifics.

Why would you report someone infected by a worm?

I think it is more than a worm I think it is someone trying to nuke me. They have sent over 8000 emails to me in the past 3 days. I don't think this is just a worm.
