The MyParty worm represents the latest development in increasingly deceptive tactics of self perpetuating viruses. Though technically unimpressive, the MyParty worm has been called a "pure social engineering attack." It is unimpressive technically because it relies on the user to open an infected attachment. However, the user does not know they are opening an attachment. Rather, they believe they are clicking to view a friend's party photos, located at www.myparty.yahoo.com. The best thing you can do to stem these types of attacks is to keep your anti-virus applications up to date. As always, you can purchase an Norton AntiVirus from Cape Cod Computer.
