"The body text of infected messages vary, but all claim to refer to supposedly pending legal action against the recipient. Examples include emails that claims the recipient’s firm sent an unsolicited commercial fax without permission.

Microsoft’s advice if you receive one of these things is smart: "If you cannot confirm with the sender that a message is valid and that an attachment is safe, delete the message immediately."
