We're getting hit by W32.Beagle at work today. It's a self generating email virus like the one you're describing.

I just got this warning from McAfee

W32/Bagle.az@MM is a Medium Risk mass-mailing worm that installs a Remote Access component that can provide hackers access to your computer. Carried inside an email attachment, the virus spreads by emailing itself to e-mail addresses found on your computer and copies itself to folders used by popular file-sharing programs such as KaZaa, Bearshare and Limewire. Like its predecessors, it also tries to terminate anti-virus and other security software protection.

Yeah, unfortunately that's pretty common stuff - usually means that *someone* with gutt's or my email address in his address book caught the virus. Since we're two prominent figures, that could be about anyone in the world! :-b
