I was reading this article about the virus at CNET, and ran across this bit:
"From the social-engineering point of view, the fact that it was using multiple messages--you couldn't just look for an 'I love you' header--helped keep this going," said Vincent Weafer, director of software maker Symantec's AntiVirus Research Center. "And in many cases the documents that are sent out have intriguing titles. People are going to be curious."Which raises a couple of questions. Is it possible to open and read the infected documents mailed out by Sircam? And our official Friday night topic: What's the most interesting document title Sircam has mailed to you or someone you know?
Indeed, SirCam-infected documents sent to CNET News.com have included such hard-to-resist titles as "SIS--cocaine business," "Madame handing over note" and "Any man of mine."
