Not sure what virus/trojan it is but it looks like klez do not open it also do a virus scan to make sure it hasnt installed anything via scripting. Did it come with any other attatchments? Because its a script file it means you do not need to open the attatchment to be infected it opens and executes itself.

Yeah I got it a few weeks back from another user (he wasnt spreading it by the way) I got it 4 times in one day m8. I suggest you mail the person and let him know this will nip it in the bud because it looks like its doing the rounds, and unless its nipped in the bud it will just keep spreading.
It started with the did you know if had this worm with removal instructions etc which was virus free but soon after the infected mails started to arrive.

Is that definately the extension it isnt .eml.exe or .eml.scr. If its just .eml its probably a failed delivery message and the file attatched is the mail you sent. .eml is a file extension for email for outlook express etc.

Did you reply directly to the email if so that will explain a failure of delivery due to the reply address being spoofed (made up)
Still becareful dont open the attatchment because it could also be a trick.

use the view full headers option and just look for email addresses. Whats there?
