This is from Kim Komando,

The thing is that it is not only can be an email but some web sites that get infected....

With an email we are getting smart enough to NOT open emails that seem strange. I don't know about you but if I got an email from the FBI that would be strange and would get deleted...but if it gets you on a website that is just being very dirty....so be careful....

That's worrisome. I use Microsoft Security Essentials, which is supposed to detect and remove this virus, but I'm not sure if it warns you before opening a website that will infect your pc. Scary stuff!
