Topic: Viruses and BugBear (33 lines)
1) From: Kevin DuPre
I think it's a foregone conclusion that Dan DID NOT
send this but someone's system with Dan's and someone
else's email address (this is one of the ways in which
Bugbear spoofs the From: address), What is interesting
is that the message body was part of a recent topic on
this list, so the virus must have scarfed that as well
and used it to formulate the message from a system
where the mail messages are saved (probably a PC with
Outlook and a saved message folder).
The virus deactivates running virus protection and
firewall protection on your system if you have it but
there is a way to remove it.  See the following link
for details if you became infected:http://vil.mcafee.com/dispVirus.asp?virus_kô738<Snip>
