A new computer virus is spreading across the internet.
The Frethem worm exploits a known vulnerability in Outlook that allows attachments to open automatically.
Experts Activis say it surfaced in Africa last week but is now spreading internationally.
It does not possess a dangerous payload, but mails itself to all addresses on victims' contacts lists.
Message content varies, but it's identifiable by the attachments 'decrypt-password.exe' and 'password.txt'.
Activis repeats the call for greater vigilance from users.
