Celebrity infections

I admire some peoples’ originality… after Anna Kournikova and Jennifer Lopez, we have a Britney Spears virus. Actually it’s the second Britney Spears virus, and neither seem to have been any good. It spreads as a .CHM (Compiled Hypertext Markup file – used for HTML help in Windows), attached to an email – which probably explains why it hasn’t spread very well. People know what a .jpg or .doc file is, but .chm? Seems like a bizarre choice, even if it means you can hide the script without using a telltale double extension.
