Email Worm Warning

Be advised, there are a host of emails going around warning people of
explosions at nuclear reactors in their area. I've received one about an
"incident" at Sizewell B that has meant that an area of 100km radius is
being evacuated.

If you get one of these emails, just delete it. The link to an information
page will attempt to install a new worm on your computer. Apparently the
worm is so new that AV software cannot yet find it. Expect that to be
rectified within 24 hours. Just be careful for the time being and this time
tomorrow run your AV suite updater.

So how do these e-mails warn of/pinpoint nuclear reactor explosions "..in their (i.e your) area"?

Clever stuff...:-)

By 'Bang at the front door' do we assume she didn't win? ;-)

Call me cynical but are those individuals who start these worms etc sick - mentally I mean (if so they can come at stay at my place of work, it's quiet here tonigh could do with some excitement) if not why they only hurt the like's of you and me, with there childish behaviour.

Thanks for the warning,after I've had a few G & T's I would really believe there had been a nuclear explosion at Sizewell or Dungeness or wherever.
Regards to all

A nuclear explosion is nothing compared to my wife nagging at me.
