not new here but this has been on bt home pages for a while now We are aware of a number of viruses that arrive in the form of an email with an attachment. On opening the attachment it runs a program. This program plunders address books for email addresses and uses an in-built mail program to send itself to new victims. Recent variants of this type of virus include Netsky, MyDoom, Mimail, Dumaru and Bagle. On no account should customers open attachments unless they are sure of the source and content.
Please also be a aware that a number of these viruses use false addresses to send from, for example [email protected] and [email protected]. Please note that the BT Internet Services billing team does not send out emails with attachments, please delete any email purporting to be from the BT Openworld, BT Yahoo! or BT Internet teams if it arrives with an attachment.
