Antivirus fighters have today warned users to beware of a virus variant on its eighth outing in the wild.
The mass mailing virus is the eighth incarnation of the 'MyLife' virus to be detected.
Fortunately for users, MyLife.H does not carry a destructive payload, unlike its original predecessor which caused mass destruction by deleting hard drives D: to I:.
Steven Sundermeier, of antivirus firm Central Command, said: "It is hard to believe these variations are still making it out. Some people never learn and will always keep on trying - we discovered new variations of MyLife yesterday."
The virus is a mass mailer that simply forwards itself on to every address found in the Windows Address Book. It does not contain a destructive payload.
The virus typically arrives as an email attachment purporting to be a screensaver called 'peeeeeep.mpeg.scr'.
Infected emails generally contain a subject line reading "peeeeeep" and a message body with the text: "Hiiiii AllHow are youuuuuuuu?look to the movi peeeeeep it's vvvery verrrry ffffunny :-) ;-)byyye========No Viruse Found======== MCAFEE.COM."
Again, the virus uses poor social engineering to appear as though the email has been scanned for viruses, but the poor grammar should put users on their guard.
Antivirus firms already have antidotes for all variants of MyLife.
