The recent infection of some systems due to an AUTORUNNING virus script MAY
relate to the following problem.

Internet Explorer has a loophole which can be used to run virus files when
email is viewed even if the attachment is not opened !!!!
Well done Microsoft!

There are TWO patches referenced below.
MS0-020 covers the above problem (540 kB)
MS0-027 covers this problem plus some later less dangerous ones. (2 MB)

Installing patch MS0-027 is probably preferred but is rather larger to
download..

Details of the problem and a patch for Internet Explorer 5.01 and 5.5 is
given by Microsoft at -

Description

MS01-020

MS01-027

bulletin/MS01-027.asp

Be sure to choose correct browser version.
