Seems you are determined to think it was deliberate despite the fact that
the way you received it is typical of the virus and not the sender. What you
have described is exactly how the virus works not some sort of retaliation
as you fear.

You should keep your AV programme updated at least once a week and then
these things will never get through - I use McAfee and have mine checked
every single day.

Take a look at http://vil.mcafee.com/dispVirus.asp?virus_k=99069&; to get the
whole description.
