'[OT]: virus warning'

That new virus is getting worse. I heard about it
here, then some of the motorcycle forums are
plagued with it. You get an email asking for
your help or opinion of a file, which is a
????????????????.doc.pif

which is of course a MZ exe when you view it in
a binary file viewer. DONT OPEN IT!!!!

Warning! MS Outlook may open this virus
automatically when you get the email.

I got two, from the same source, one said
"failure of conditions of storage"
one said
"application for credit form"
on the two subject headers.

Both were from:
Return-Path: <spam_OUTstaffTakeThisOuTspamblueberry.co.nz>
Received: from mta3-rme.xtra.co.nz (mta3-rme.xtra.co.nz [203.96.92.13])

Received: from PHOENIX ([210.55.124.208]) by mta3-rme.xtra.co.nz with
SMTP
         id <20010724210144.DDSE5720334.mta3-rme.xtra.co.nz@PHOENIX>
From: "Blueberry Country Ltd"<.....staffKILLspamspam@spam@blueberry.co.nz>

I don't know if it is a list member or not.
Beware! :o)

Hi Roman.

I've got alot stupid emails yesterday and day before
with virus attached, hiding to be .doc or .xls file
on first look ;) with actual .com or .exe or .pif
extensions.

It's kind of weird to trash somebody's smart brain
for virus writing ;(

WBR Dmitry.

I have also received this virus with extensions of .dod.pif, .doc.lnk,
.doc.bat, and .doc.scr.  All are equally nasty.  Fortunately I pre-screen
all email with Pine before letting Outlook see it...

I've been getting multiple emails from
< EraseMErubenvillarealspamhome.com > with an attachment
named < bwaurel1.com >. I assume it is a virus,
but don't intend to find out.

"Paranoia strikes deep. " as CSNY said,   The link on my message is to a Mcaffee.com page talking about the sircam virus.  "Don't Panic!" as Doug Adams said.

My Geek Squad says the virus is all over the place today.

I think he meant this:

I've been wondering myself.

This virus uses a new mechanism to propagate it's destructive behavior. It
somehow compels the recipient to send a new email to the piclist for each
copy of the virus they receive ;)

Insidious, but very clever;)

Wow! Now that you mention it, I've noticed many people
REPLYING to the emails warning about the virus!
We could be onto something, soon it may mutate into
the fabled "Amish Virus" where you reject technology and
write the virus on paper in longhand then deliver it
to everyone you know via horse and carriage...
Scary stuff. ;o)

He seems to have found a way to kill the automatic messages
at the end. I noticed it showed up when he was experimenting
to get rid of the other garbage in his posts, some kind of
formatting tags that were being embedded.

Hi Roman and others,

Yes Blueberry Country are a PIClist member and their system has
been hit by this virus. I phoned them this morning and they are
having a major problem with this one.

They asked me to pass on their apologies for unknowingly passing
this virus on to PIClist members, which of course is not their fault,
just a consequence of being infected with the virus.

Thanks, Brent.

I've only met one other Roman (who wasn't my father or grandfather).  What
is the origin/ethnicity of your family?  I am portuguese and PROUD of it.

  I'm a novice PIC developer and I just got on the list
