This is a bogus warning that's been circulating for over 6 months
now. Please read these kinds of warnings before passing them on.
For example, that the statement "Rest assured that whoever's name was on
the "From" line was surely struck by the virus." is a sure signal of
the prank nature of this warning.
Incidentally, there are non-program viruses that are currently hitting
computers, but they are a series of Word 6.0 (& 7.0) macro viruses.
For info on these viruses, check out the following site:
