This is a virus, and is not from Microsoft. If you are using Outlook or
Outlook Express it will attempt to infect everyone in your address book.

Best thing is to do yourself and everyone else a big favour, get rid of
Outlook and get a real mail program, rather than a deliberate security hole.


Best thing is to do yourself and everyone else a big favour, get a clue.
You've posted this to *fifteen* newsgroups and while you may consider
this a public spirited messages it is OT in all groups you posted it to.
If people are interested in securing their machines than let them read
about that in the relevant places.

Are you sure everyone who got your message would be affected? How many
Linux, Mac, *BSD, Amiga, etc., users are there in those groups for whom
your message will be irrelevant?

How many people who got your message keep their machines up to date and
therefore are secure from the attack?

How many people aren't useing Outhouse/Outhouse Express?

If you want to be public spirited notify the AV companies and report the
abuse to the originator's ISP.

Hmmmm.... So, my thoughts on world domination, starting with banning
the clueless from the net and not letting them on without passing a
written examination... and ending with the death penalty for all crimes
equal to or greater in severity than parking on double yellow lines
wouldn't get a warm reception in this group? .... bugger ....


hmmm..... I wonder, does alt.heads-of-state.dicatator exist as a group
yet?

..... RFC ...
