I'm simply wondering if there are any attempts out there to determine the source and/or solution to the "Here you have"/"Just for you" email that's infecting a lot of inboxes.

Here's what I know already:
There's an email going around with the subject: "Here you have" or "Just for you". Inside the email is a brief message and a hyperlink to a .pdf file (supposedly). When you click it, the virus file quickly executes and propogates by emailing itself to all the other people on that user's contact list. The resulting flood of spam can quickly drag email servers to a hault and disrupt all legitimate network traffic. Is there any other info out there regarding this attack - aside from what I already heard last night on the national news?
