New virus warning

  Forum Editor 07:39 10 Aug 2004

There's a new variant of the Bagle e-mail worm which has been spreading very rapidly over the past 24 hours or so. It's called W32/[email protected] and it infects your computer by enticing you to open a ZIP attachment.

The virus will arrive in an email with "price" or "new price" or variants on that theme in the body of the message - the attachment will be similarly labeled. Needless to say you should delete any such message without opening the attachment.

Thanks. Just found 4 in my inbox (at work) - all disinfected by anti-virus.

Thanks. Had two this morning. Norton got them.

I hope it was only two.
