    I can imagine a few people would fall for this!

    Hey,

    I recieved this e-mail today:


    The sample file you sent contains a new virus version of buppa.k.

    Please update your virus scanner with the attached dat file.

    Best Regards,

    Keria Reynolds

    ++++ Attachment: No Virus found

    ++++ Norton AntiVirus -
    www.symantec.de
    The e-mail was sent from But luckly AVG antivirus picked it up


    Viruses found in the attached files.

    The file datfiles.zip: Virus identified I-Worm/Netsky.Q. The attachment was moved to the virus vault.

    So in other words if you dont have anti virus software i suggest you download the AVG Free edition or dont open any e-mails which look strange - i.e. it was strange for me to recieve a e-mail from norton as i dont use there products and have never submited a virus to them.

    I wonder if it would have been flagged up as a virus had you had Norton AV installed?!!

    hmm i think it would have been recognised as they check all attachments not e-mail addresses, as far as i am aware
