Yet another virus alert

A co-worker just game me a Reuters newswire story about yet another new virus. This one is spread via email to users of Microsoft's email program, and comes as an item to let people vote whether the US should go to war over the WTC attack. According to the article, the subject line is, 'Peace between America and Islam'; when the attachment entitled WTC.exe is opened, all files in the hard drive are deleted and copes sent to every address listed in the user's address book. Apparently this virus started coming out on Monday morning. Just another thing to be careful of.
