Anna Kournikova Worm Celebrates 10th Anniversary

Ten years ago the Anna Kournikova email worm broke out, infecting millions of computers around the world and teaching everyone a hard lesson in social engineering.

The malware was created by a 20-year old Dutch programmer named Jan de Wit, who used a virus generator downloaded from the Internet.

Written in Visual Basic, the worm was neither sophisticated, nor destructive. It was dubbed "Anna Kournikova" because it spread via an email attachment that posed as a picture of the beautiful Russian tennis player.

The infector was called AnnaKournikova.jpg.vbs and once run, it sent the malicious email to all contacts in the victim's Outlook address book.
