Here you have...

A horrible computer virus is spreading by email this week. They seem to have the initial attack under control but new variants are expected to arise. You probably don't need to be told not to ever click any attachments that seem weird, even if they come from a friend, but here's the details on this anyway.
The virus, called “here you have” (or VBMania, though different security companies have different names for the same virus), is a simple Trojan Horse: An e-mail arrives in your inbox with the odd-but-suggestive subject line “here you have.” The body reads “This is The Document I told you about, you can find it Here” or “This is The Free Download Sex Movies, you can find it Here.”

Click the link in the message and you download and launch a program that spams the same Trojan Horse out to everyone in your address book, flooding and crippling e-mail servers.
Like I said, you probably already know to avoid these things, but better safe than sorry, heh?
