    The details are probably following:
    password protected archive attached to mail
    letter contains password and description like "check this fun game i found"
    as it came from someone you know, you run it without extra questions
    So as usual malware writers use weakest part of computer security - specifically user.

    no, "very stupid people" is a label reserved for those who download .rar files containing exes from people left on message boards and then run them...
