ZDnet's reporting that a newer, more evil version of Bropia is wandering around MSN Messenger again...

The latest variant of the Bropia worm was discovered on Wednesday evening. It infects users of MSN Messenger by sending itself as a picture of a roast chicken with tan lines. It also releases a second more dangerous worm called agabot.ajc on the infected user's computer.

Adam Biviano, senior systems engineer at antivirus firm Trend Micro, said that although there have only been a handful of reported infections, Trend Micro has declared a medium risk alert because of the worm's potential to spread and steal users' bandwidth.

"The potential for damage is quite high because it drops another worm on your machine that is quite nasty and can spread through network by taking advantage of unpatched desktops and servers," said Biviano.
Worms that deliver other worms have been done before, but it's still pretty nasty.
