Subject:        Virus/Worm/Trojan Horse Update

Dear SHAKSPEReans,

Eric and I have extensively checked out the Unix server that is the home
of SHAKSPER, and we are convinced that neither my desktop nor the server
is the source of the Virus/Worm/Trojan Horse I warned everyone about
yesterday. First of all, the server cannot relay mail; thus, it cannot
be taken over by a hacker to send spam or viruses, even if that hacker
were to somehow or other get past all of the firewalls that are in
place. Second, the most prevalent bugs on the Internet target Windows
machine (especially those using Outlook) whereas Unix is not affected by
them.

WARNING: If you received any message that appears to come from me and
that has an executable attachment, you should delete it immediately
