You're right it is NOT a virus, it's a WORM.

A computer worm called Happy99.exe, able to send
copies of itself by e-mail and spam itself to Usenet
newsgroups, is making its way around the Internet.
The worm is currently in the wild in Europe
and is already spreading around North America. 

The worm arrives as an attachment to e-mail or
newsgroup messages and is able to infect only when
users run this attachment.
