Over the last four or five months I have received the same piece of junk mail (in a variety of different formats) at least eight to ten times. Apparently coming from the e-mail address ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’, it contains an attachment and reads as follows:
“Today, Snowhite was turning 18. The 7 Dwarfs always where very educated and polite with Snowhite. When they go out work at mornign, they promissed a *huge* surprise. Snowhite was anxious. Suddlently, the door open, and the Seven Dwarfs enter…”
Today I received the same e-mail twice, with one version being written in Spanish. I finally snapped and did a search on the net, only to find that it is a worm-based virus that sends itself to anyone who sends e-mail to an infected computer. All the information you need in order to deal with the virus is here. But be warned, I know for a fact that at least one of the people who has sent me e-mail has contracted this virus. If you’ve ever seen it, or think you might have opened it, run a virus check immediately.
