i've just had 8 e mails to two accounts purportedly from

they have an attachment called click here, anybody else had them

and does anybody know what virus it launches??

Not had them myself, but have heard about them. They are nasty things that try to spread themselves to your friends and phone home with any credit card info they find.

i didn't mean to create a "click here" just wanted to write the attachment name,

how can you stop it turning into a "click here" link?!!

I had this email arrive yesterday--luckily I was suspicious as it detailed an email address I don't use with Paypal. I've deleted the message without opening the attachment, do I need to do anything else?

Nope - just keep your AV up to date.. 11:55 21 Nov 2003
