Default Computer Virus Warning.

If you receive email claiming you can download a program to resist the Klez virus, do not open it! The antivirus perogram is the virus itself. I don't know if the virus is a variant of Klez or a new virus.
I received this warning from the coordinator of a webring in which I participate. I consider the source of the warning highly trustworthy.

Be careful out there, folks!

Steve

With downloads I take the same tact as a lawyer.. never ask a question you don't know the answer to.
NEVER download anything unless you know it what it is!

Regards,
Kuki

Heck, Kuki, I take it a step further. If I don't recognize the sender's email address, it's deleted without opening. A keystroke of discretion is worth a mainframe of cure.
