Well, these latest ones appear to be from people who I do not know. It
appears that the V can scan messages in the infected person's in box. If
the e-mail was addressed to multiple people (like all the frickin e-mail
chain messages that every sends out), it will send itself to everyone it can
find! I know this because I've gotten the V from people whom I do not know
personally, but who I know are regularly sent e-mail by a friend of mine.
So in some ways this V is easy to detect as you'll get attachments from a
lot of people you do NOT know.
