That person probably got hit with a virus that looks to his sent mail and address list and sends out messages that contain an attached virus file.   The VBscript is probably malicious. Don't open.

If in doubt, contact the person who purportedly sent it and ask if he really sent it and what changes he made.

Beware Jon. All of that smells like fish to me.
