Subject:        Romeo and Juliet Virus

Hi, guys.

There's an announcement this morning from McAfee of a new virus called
"Romeo and Juliet", that infects Outlook systems.  It is, however,
low-risk, and seems to have nothing to do with the play.  It doesn't,
for instance, promote teen suicide, or fry a couple of print servers in
order that the warring Unix and Windows applications will start talking
to each other.

The announcement is here:

Cheers,
Se
