Naked Julia Roberts virus



Users hoping for a sneaky peek at some candid shots of Hollywood star Julia Roberts in compromising positions are facing disappointment - the email attachment turns out to be a computer virus, ZDNet UK reports.

Curious smut-seekers are in danger of infecting their machines with the mass-mailing worm MyLife.M, which purports to be a screensaver featuring the movie star.

However, the virus is still carrying a low-level warning from most anti-virus vendors and appears to be doing very little damage currently, perhaps because of the lack of originality in terms of infection methods.

Anna Kournikova, Jennifer Lopez, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Colombian singer Shakira have all been given the dubious honour of having a virus named after them.
