Re: VIRUS ALERT



Most of these virus's are pretty much Outlook and Outlook Express related.
Outlook Express 5.5 and 6 now have a default setting where all e-mail going
through your inbox will have the addressee added to your address book.  If
you happen to be in someones address book because of this new configuration,
or they added you, and they get infected, then you'll have these messages
bounced to you..

The only way for it to stop is the person infected to either be taken off
line or cleaned.. the Chinese and other Asian locations are taking advantage
of this new Microsoft feature, because Netscape and Mozilla had this new
feature.  I am an IT guy at Rogers Communications and we get hit with these
almost once a week..
