Worm.Win32.Zafi.B Alert!
The new internet worm Zafi.B spreads very fast mainly via email attachments, but also via filesharing networks. The message subject and body text differs depending on the domain extension of the receiver's email address. Target email addresses are collected on the local computer and extracted from several files like temporary internet files and email addressbooks.

Once opened and installed, the worm sets an autorun entry at the system registry. If it is run, the worm spreads itself to all available email addresses. It also runs a module that attempts to flood some Hungarian websites.

The email text is available in many languages. The text advises the user to open the file attachment which seems to be a greating card.
