Virus


#1

We just received a virus and have done our best to rid our system of
it, however we wanted to notify all of its presence and that it comes
via email and infects your outlook express. VBS.SST@mm is a VBS email
worm that has been encoded using a virus creation kit. The worm
arrives as an attachment named AnnaKournikova.jpg.vbs When executed,
the worm emails itself to everyone in your Microsoft Outlook book.
Delete immediately if you receive it.

As an additional note, you should delete ANY attachments with the
.vbs extension. These are script files and I have yet to see one
without an insidious objective, although there are theoretically
legitimate uses. You may need to examine the attachment to confirm the
extension, as it may not be immediately apparent due to long file
names. In this case, it may have appeared to be a .jpg image since the
true .vbs extension may not have been visible.
