Yes. We had one, and only one, infected machine on our campus. The person
was running Netscape and just had to open the attached file. She double
clicked on it after she saved it, the Windows Scripting Host ran and she had
a destroyed machine (with users who are numb, the safest bet is to format
the drive and start over - they'll find a file on there somewhere that is
infected and rescrew the system if you don't). It didn't replicate to the
rest of us because it wasn't opened in Outlook (Outlook wasn't available).

It was the President's secretary.  A very nice lady, but not very computer
wise.  She had to *try* to open the file - which is something I've already
commented on.
