Not at all a happy bunny. I broke the golden rule and opened an attachment but it was from someone I knew! It said I had picked up mydoom.j virus. Also was an e-mail from [email protected]. This said to open the attachment to remove the virus.....WRONG!!!!! This makes me feel very silly but the e-mail was from someone I knew. What makes me very angry indeed is my Mcafee antivirus just got an update on 10 march. So what bloody use was that!
Fortunately new version of Stinger removed over 9000 W32/[email protected]s files. Guess who's just done a backup! If antivirus software doesn't stop viruses, what chance have we got?
I have recieved 3 emails,all from spoofed addresses, over the past couple of days which had w32/[email protected] attached but luckily my av caught them and dropped the attachments.I'm surprised to read that Mcafee didn't spot it as this is a very good virus checker(beats the pants off of NAV).If you wish to change your av you should have a look at f-secure,it tops most av tests including university of Hamburg.click here
Forgot to mention that f-secure 2004 is available on a 30 day free trial from thier web site or as a 6 month trial on the cover discs of PcPro(april)and the DVD version of Computer Shopper(May).There is also a pretty decent firewall included.
