Looks like a new worm/virus is going around called W32.Bropia.J, my buddy Basil just got hit by it. Don't run executable file types you get from IM clients (Trilian, AOL IM, Yahoo IM etc.) Better yet, if you are not sure don't run ANY files sent to you over IM (instant message) clients.
Here is a copy for those that want to dissect it (it may be a variant of the above worm)

Is this worm being sent out only through MSN messenger? Cause that is the only one Symantec's Security Response mentions. Or is it like you said, that they are using all those other IM's to spread it, as well?

It just sends from MSN, but a Trillian user can receive it.
