      VIRUS ALERT!

      OK, I know this isn't a normal section, but the W32.Sober.X@mm virus is propagating like a digital rabbit and it's driving me (and everyone else) with an e-mail account crazy.

      This is one of the fastest spreading viruses in a long time. It's clever - it uses subject lines like:

      * Your IP was logged
      * You visit illegal websites
      * Your Password
      * Registration Confirmation
      * smtp mail failed
      * Mail delivery failed
      * hi, ive a new mail address
      * Paris Hilton & Nicole Richie


      The first two subject lines listed above have a "from" address of either @fbi.gov or CIA.gov. The body tells you that you've been on illegal websites and you need to fill out the attached questionnaire (or something to that effect).

      The other e-mails are equally cleaver and try to trick people into running the .zip attachment to get their "password", "registration", "Paris Hilton", or whatever.

      When you run the zip attachment, you'll get an error message and the virus will infect your computer. From there, it will start mass e-mailing every address it can find and attempt to manipulate your AV software.

      For example, if Norton is installed, it tries to override the Live Update feature. Once in control, if Live Update is run, one of these message boxes will come up:

      Thank you for using LiveUpdate. All of the Symantec products
      and components are currently up-to-date.

      OR

      No Connection!

      Either way, that's the virus talking, not Live Update. Clever huh?

      Finally, if you're still infected on Jan 5, 2006, the virus will attempt to download and run a malicious file that does who-knows-what to your computer.

      So, if you haven't updated your virus definitions lately, now would be a good time.

      If you suspect you're infected, Symantec has a handy removal tool at their website (along with more info on this worm):

      http://www.symantec.com/avcenter/ven...ober.x@mm.html

      Finally, remember the golden rule - NEVER EVER open an attachment that you're not expecting - especially if this attachment is in the form of a zip or exe file!! Oldest trick in the virus book and thousands, if not millions, are falling for it again. Don't be one of 'em :-)

      I have gotten a couple of stmp mail fail and i actually thought about opening the file but then i thought about it for a second and then i realized that i had not recently sent any type of file that needed to be sent back to me. Thanks for the heads up on this one.
      You are here because you know something,what you
      know you can't explain,but you feel it.You've felt it
      your entire life; that theres something wrong with the
      world.You don't know what it is but it's there; a
      splinter in your mind... the matrix

      Greetings Draptomania, Kwaku Omobamidele, bigdaddiej

      Welcome Everyone! Always a pleasure seeing the family.

      I am happy to know that you all were on top of things, and avoided getting your computer infected by this virus. I am still getting complaints from people falling victim to it.

      Just stay alert, and use caution when opening any email or attachments. Again do not accept or download files from anyone you don't know. if it is some you know and are expecting a file, make sure and scan it first.

      We cannot avoid all instances of getting a virus, but if we use caution we can minimize the possibility of getting any at all.

      I appreciate you all for taking the time to keep me updated. it is always a pleasure serving my people.

      Peace & Blessings!

      Greetings Sis. Jahness!!! When I sent out the warning to people...I sent it as a document that needed to be downloaded AND I ALSO titled it "New Virus Out" lmao!! People were sending me messages asking why I was sending a virus (I need to stay off the 'puter at night when I'm sleepy...LOL!!!)

      Thankfully, I was awake when I sent the warning out again.

      Asante for all that you do
