Re: Advoiding Viruses was RE: what a nightmare

Thanks Kim for the info, but, this Virus is not sent by the person you know
as this is a password stealing virus. As they explained to me, "it" finds
the password of someone you e-mail to or have in your address book. Then
"it" sends an e-mail to whomever. And this one is not caught by the most
recent virus scans either. Then when you try to sign on, it copies YOUR
password and immediatley sends it out. I was locked out of my computer for
three days!
Anyway, it's gone from mine now, but, watch out for ANY e-mail with an
attachment from even your own S-I-L, with the file name of MI32 or mine.exe.
