Fellows and Friends,
After the recent discussion here about email attachments and viruses, I
thought I'd pass this information along:
Antivirus vendors are warning about the new W32/Goner@MM
virus (see http://www.mcafeeb2b.com/avert/virus-alerts/default.asp ).
From this Antivrus software website:
This mass mailing worm attempts to send itself using
Microsoft Outlook to all entries found in the Outlook
Address book. It tries to delete security software, can
spread via ICQ, and an IRC boot script. It arrives in an
email message containing the following information:
How are you ?
When I saw this screen saver, I immediately thought about you
I am in a harry, I promise you will love it!
Running this attachment infects the local system.
So, Do NOT open any email that sounds anything like this. And if you can,
update your virus software.
