I just received an email with a virus attached. It's not a new one but quite a bad one anyway.<BR>It's called W32.Klez.E@mm and it was attached to a com or Bat in the Email.<P>The problem is that as soon as you click on the Email preview pane it runs it! <BR>So you don't even have to open it.<BR>Luckily my Norton email scanning detected it. Otherwise I wouldn't have even known what it was. It scans the address book for Email addresses.<P>To fix Outlook Express to stop this go to the patch here. It's for IE 5 & 5.5 but it still happened in my IE6! <A HREF="http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/MS01-020.asp" TARGET=_blank>http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/MS01-020.asp</A> <P>For details on the virus and a fixing tool go here: <A HREF="http://email@example.com" TARGET=_blank>http://firstname.lastname@example.org</A> <P>Check your systems!<P>------------------<BR><I>Going in Full Throttle!</I><BR><A HREF="http://www.antilles100.freeserve.co.uk" TARGET=_blank>The X-wing Outpost</A><BR>Home of The Batlle of Yavin and Endor projects.

I've been getting a lot of those recently form different senders....but Norton quarrantines it, and then I delete it. It's more of a nuisance to me than a real threat...<P>But I haven't seen those sites before, thanks Ace.

Looks like this one's getting around, after all. It always makes me glad I don't use horribly insecure e-mail clients like Outlook (Express).
