Clicking on the link offers you the chance to download a file called
'attachment.wav' which is pretending to be a sound file.

This is the Win32.Netsky.P email worm. In this example the attachment is
an executable worm which is pretending to be a .wav file.

Netsky.P is a worm that spreads through e-mail and file sharing.
Netsky.P arrives in the form of a "dropper", which creates and loads a
DLL file containing the bulk of the worm code.
