With regard to the LINK.VBS virus, it seems it is another "send yourself to
everyone on the current victim's mailing list"-type virus - which means it
*could* come from a source that is normally quite unimpeachable.
The message below is a useful follow-up to the original warning:

If you were to double click on the attachment, I suspect
that the VB Script would access files on your hard drive
and mail copies of itself to addresses your Contacts folder.
I did the wrong thing and got a porno site and a desktop icon.
The virus detector detected the virus and deleted 
being the only two contaminated files. If you got this virus then delete the
email, delete the desktop icon and delete the above two files and hope it is
not anywhere else.
It came from somewhere I would have normally trusted. So be warned
