Warning: MEP62F6.TMP.EXE

I just visited
http://www.catalinayachts.com/

When I clicked on the
"Welcome Aboard",

a program named "MEP62F6.TMP.EXE"
was launched automatically,
and it consumed 95+% CPU,
and it spins your Hard Disk like crazy,
and it attemps to access the Internet
from your computer (my firewall caught it),
so I manually killed it.

I suspect that it might be some sort of
virus which got activated when you visit/DL
Catalina''s webpage. But I am not sure.
I am no virus expert. I am just reporting
a bizzare behavior from visiting that page.
You might want to be careful since there''s
a major worm going around since Tuesday.

If you know what that program is about,
and why it got activated when I visited
that website, please share your info.
Thanks.

The joys of owning a MAC. Most viruses dont affect them.
