NAV detects a virus...what now please?

Evening all,

Upon the receipt of a new email Norton AV detected two viruses within it.
I partly want to open the email though as it may be legit.
The email subject reads:

From: [email protected] (replace the word admin with nick for my actual email address)

Subject: your account ieekusir.

That's it. It looks like a sly attempt to get me to open it but it is in my deleted folder as I type. I have had some dealings re my account recently at Freeserve so it may well be legit. after all. Might have to phone them to be sure I guess.

In the quarantined part of NAV it reads:

[email protected]
then,
The other is shown as unknown, but is down as a message.zip

I seem to recall NAV saying they couldn't be repaired and are so in quarantine. Any advice for me here please?

Best Wishes,

Nick Jones

Delete it - it is the MiMail virus, not a genuine e-mail.

Thanks VoG

Have been reading about it here (Symantec)

It's only just been sent to me again!

Not a wind up by a member I hope.

Here here! for NAV!
