The Klez Virus has reappeared in a more virulent form; kind of a digital mutation if you will. The subject line is random and the name of the attachment is random. However if you click on the attachment it will delete files on your hard drive and on any mapped drives such as your U: drive for user files and your F: drive for departmental work files.

If your Norton Virus Definition File date is 4/17/2002 you are OK. Click on the Gold Shield in the lower right corner of your screen to see the File Date. If not please run Live Update right away.


MODS PLEASE MAKE THIS POST ANNOUNCEMENT.

Thanks

Alex

Gee, that's intelligent.

What do you think the troublemakers (virus authors) will target once something else becomes the dominant platform (and there will ALWAYS be a dominant platform).

Don't tell me about the security superiority of this or that particular system, it's BS and easily disproven. Especially when targeting the mass-market of typically clueless (not an insult - they don't need to have a clue) end users.

FACT: troublemakers follow the same pattern as legitimate software developers - i.e. they target the most popular platform in order to achieve the most 'market share'.

flame away...

the intelligent point that you missed is to stay away from the dominant platform.
