One such virus is the W32.Blackmal.E virus that usually spreads to the user systems by means of email advertisements for adult movies as an attachment.

The text would be short and simple like, You Must View This Videoclip!, It's Free!, Note: forwarded message attached, forwarded message or I just any one see my photos.
If you open (or download) the attachment, then the virus will install itself on your system. Then, it uses your email address to forward the same email message to all your contacts. It can also spread through network connections. It attempts to change the extensions of some specific files with any random text. These files can be .doc, .xls, .ppt, etc. And this operation is done on the 3rd of every month. Interesting, isn't it??
