Warning - Yet Another Bug Via E-mail! Read!

Got an e-mail in the bulk section of my Yahoo email with the subject of "re: approved". Scanned it with my Norton Anti-Virus and there was a virus found on it called - W32.Sobig.F@mm

DO NOT OPEN! DELETE THIS IMMEDIATELY! I have no idea what it is or what it does, but be wary of an email titled "re:approved"

You can open these e-mails, provided your e-mail provider doesn't automatically load the attachments. Some versions of Outlook Express have this problem. Just don't execute the attachment.

However, it is a good idea to never open attachments that you didn't request, nor know where they came from. Almost always, they are e-mail worms, all the way from W32.Sobig to W32.Klez, which still is in e-mail circles. I'd never open an attachment from the "Bulk" section ever.

Regardless, I don't think this belongs in FYM, but, rather, in LS.

Well fine then I know I am notoriously known for posted in the wrong forum. I'm dumb. I can never get the right forum and when I think I have it my post is always moved. LOL
