It's not just Yiannis.  It's another of those email worms that propagates
itself when you open the attachment.  It randomly selects a file from your
C drive, appends itself to it, and then sends the whole shebang out to
everyone in your address book.

Remember, practice "Safe email."

Do *not* open *any* attachments
**UNLESS** you know the sender,
*AND* you're expecting an attachment from that person,
*AND* the filename of the attachment matches the filename
      that you're expecting.
