    A "highly aggressive" virus using the name of a well known porn star to aid infection has been spotted in the wild.
    Antivirus firms have warned that the 'Jenna Jameson' virus has a "large potential for spreading" because it tricks users into executing the code by tempting them with links to free pics of the porn star doing the nasty.

    The virus arrives as an email with the subject line: 'Jenna Jameson pornostar free superf***+photo addresses'. The accompanying attachment, 'JENNA-JAMESON-FREE-SUPERF***.TXT.vbs', appears to be a text file but is really a malicious Visual Basic script.

    If the file is executed it opens a text document with a list of links to porn sites, but in the background it infects the user's PC.

    Not only is the virus a mass mailer, which sends itself to all names in the Windows Address Book, it will display a message on 12 May which reads: 'Your PC has been hacked by KaGra[ATZI virus ver 2.1]'.

    On 13 May, it deletes the 'Windows' folder on drive C: or the 'Winnt' folder if the machine is running NT.

    What is unusual for a virus of today is its ability to spread via floppy disk.

    According to antivirus firm BitDefender, the virus has been dubbed 'Kagra' by the experts.

    Mihaela Stoian, virus researcher at BitDefender, said: "Kagra is another example of malicious code using famous names to trick ignorant users.

    "As more and more messages with porn content fill our inboxes, it's really difficult to spot a virus from them.

    "You could easily run into a mass-mailer that could use user's contacts from the Outlook address book to spread rapidly in the wild and then to erase all Windows files."

    Well I did some "research" at clubjenna and I must say this is indeed a travesty. Exploiting the good name of a honest and hardworking citizen in this manner is purest evil.
