MSN Instant Messaging Virus Warning

There is an MSN Instant Messenger worm that has found it's way through the Internet and to the various organizations. It presents the user with a link in English stating "haha I found your picture!", and if your system supports other languages, it may appear in another language.

If a user clicks on the link included with the message, a copy of the Kelvir.HI W32.Spyboot worm is automatically downloaded to the users systems. The worm will then close security applications on the system and attempt to spread further via IM.

The Kelvir.HI worm affects computers running Windows 2000, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows NT, Windows Server 2003, and Windows XP.
