Hi everybody:
Last week when somebody sent an AV Coll. Policy as an
attachment to the whole list, several of us got a virus
warning. The author sent a message stating that it was
not a virus - just old software.
This is not true. I've just spent an hour with virus
detection software and there was, indeed a macro
virus in that message. Macros are particularly vicious
as once you open that .doc file, it spreads to everyone
who you send e-mail messages to from your e-mail
directory.

So, everyone be warned & use some virus detection
software & clean up your computer files!

Susan
