Got two copies of the same virus from "20iaei@iaei.org" at 2:43pm EDT.

The subject is "new game"

The message says:

Hello,This is a new game
This game is my first work.
You're the first player.
I hope you would like it.

The file is: snoopy.exe

Norton Antivirus Quarentined them before there was a problem.

Beware!



I've notified IAEI about the problem, but it may take a while to cure.

I don't know if I've gotten that one because they get picked out by our Mail Server and I just get a notification (maybe 25 - 50/day). But I have noticed a new name in recent days.

have you seen >> W32/Yaha.g@MM virus ?
