FW: Goldfish -

  Patr100 18:58 25 Mar 2003

In my junk mail folder I have been getting emails with an attachment with a hidden extension -*.doc.pif. It's no problem it's been picked up by AVG as well as suspect although I already knew it was suspicious by it's nature. I know these can be associated with viruses. Different senders but not from anyone I knew. I just happen to have a Goldfish credit card but it's unconnnected with that.

Usually has the message something like " Here it is, dear (or similar)".
- Can't seem to find much reference on Google or a search on Symantec or McAfee.

Just curious - Any one else got any info on this? I'm just deleting it as necessary.

I might add that "Goldfish" or "FW: Goldfish " is always in the subject line of the email.

Thanks for the identification, VoG™ I have now been able to read up on it on Symantec.
