This new threat is presented in the form of a picture of the beautiful Anna Kournikova, a Russian tennis star very famous on sport Internet site. The picture comes in an attached file entitled 'AnnaKournikova'. If you open it, the file is automatically send to all the contacts you have in your address book.
