Subject: Virus Alert: W32.Beagle.B@mm
I hate having to waste everyone's time with this, but the proliferation
of Internet viruses/worms has reached a new level of sophistication, if
such execrable behavior deserves the term sophistication.
Quite a few members wrote to me yesterday to say they had received an
infected e-mail from me.
They were only partially correct. Yes, the e-mail they received was
infected with the W32.Beagle.B@mm worm. No, I did not send it.
This is yet another case of a virus/worm stealing an address from an
infected person's address book and making it appear that the stolen
address is the source of a message that is intended to spread the
virus/worm even further.
I am the source of approximately 200,000 e-mails a week but not this one.
So please beware of ANY e-mail with the Subject line "Re: ID uismq...
thanks" and the body
Yours ID bbooch
These e-mails are infected with W32.Beagle.B@mm and should be
immediately deleted from your inboxes.
