crafty email virus zipped

  anniecat 13:34 16 May 2004

I collected what looked like a legitimate mail from spam folder of filterspam because it was from an organisation that is involved in the same charity work as myself. it contained a zip file. the only message was .. "try this game :)" and contained this :-
++++ Attachment: No Virus found
++++ Norman AntiVirus - click here

I didn't open the zip file but it did contain one of the netsky virus' which AVG chucked in the vault and I have now deleted along with the offending mail.. Looks like we can't trust a virus free certification now, does it..?

can't remember what I did but I was still in my outlook expres window when AVG told me the mail contained a virus which it had isolated.. I had looked at the body of the mail but hadn't opened the zip so it did seem to detect it in the zip without me actually opening it.
