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 ‘FYI’.
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
