A new virus threat broke out on the Internet today (9/18/03)
The W32.Swen.A@mm worm can inflect your computer through Email, IRC, Network Shares, Kazaa, and Newsgroups.
The Email infection masquerades as a security notice with a "patch" attached to the Email from Microsoft.
Please be advised, Microsoft does *NOT* send security patches via email.
The virus also takes advantage of a security flaw in Microsoft Outlook that allows an attached .exe files to be executed without *ANY* user action.
Emails with an .exe attachment are filtered before they reach your in box so again this is an â€˜FYIâ€™.
For those of you who have home PC running Windows can find more information at the following links. http://www.microsoft.com/technet/treeview/default.asp?url=/technet/security/bulletin/MS01-020.asp http://email@example.com
