|By||new photos from my party! ... is a VIRUS|

W32/MyParty-A is a Windows 32 email-aware worm which arrives as an email with the following characteristics:
Subject: new photos from my party!
My party... It was absolutely amazing!
Attached filename: www.myparty.yahoo.com
Some people may be fooled into believing the attached file is a link to a website. If the attached file is executed the worm sends a copy of itself to everybody in the Windows Address book (except the current user) using a built in SMTP engine.
It gets the SMTP server information from the registry key: HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Account Manager\Accounts\00000001
The worm also sends an email to email@example.com to track its spread.
