An e-mail making the rounds that claims to contain pornography is actually a Trojan horse that will take control of a user's machine and steal private information, numerous anti-virus companies warned Tuesday.

    The Trojan, dubbed Backdoor.Sysbug, BackDoor-CAG, and Troj/Sysbug-A by a variety of security firms, comes with the subject heading of 'Re[2]:Mary and claims to contain images of the message's author having wild sex with a girlfriend.

    "Hello my dear Mary," the e-mail's message opens. "Do you remember when we were having wild sex in my house? I remember it all like it was only yesterday. You said that the pictures would not come out good, but you were very wrong, they are great."
