People are asking me why I have not notified everybody in my email address book about this. I am afraid that a characteristic feature of such an infection is that it wrecks the host's address book, making it inaccessible. This is presumably just to prevent this very action. Vicious, isn't it?

I may be able to get the address book working again, I may not. If not I shall have to build up my personal address book again, from scratch.
