WORM ALERT!

Posted by Janet C on 11/28/01 at 21:59 (065575)

If you get an email from a friend that has a RE: (familiar subject) in the subject line be VERY CAREFUL!! There is a virus called BADTRANS.B@MM that is racing through the net right now. It will affect your computer EVEN if you don't open the attachment. If you get your email using OUTLOOK or OUTLOOK EXPRESS, look out!!! To clean it, you must run your AV program but you must ALSO do some manual registry editing and delete a keystroke-logging file. Fortunately, yahoo gives you a chance to scan before you download so if you use yahoo SCAN!!!!!

For details and removal instructions see:
