Virus Warning

<p>Just a quick note to all you wacky kids out there:</p>

<p>There's a new email virus that is making quick inroads into people's computers. I believe that it works like the virus that came about a few months ago - it comes from people you know who have been infected. I've been sent it twice already.</p>

<p>The body of the message looks similar to this:</p>

<p>Mail transaction failed. Partial message is available. --OR--<br />
The message contains Unicode characters and has been sent as a binary attachment. --OR--<br />
The message cannot be represented in 7-bit ASCII encoding and has been sent as a binary attachment.</p>

<p>It has an attachment that is the virus. Remember to never open an attachment, even from a friend unless you are expecting it. As an added bonus, it's really new, so unless your virus scan has updated in the last 12 hours, it won't find it either. Good Times.</p>

<p>Isn't the internet grand?</p>

Holy crappola! I got that one today, but I didn't recognize the sender, so I deleted it.

Hackers: Please, drop your swords, we know you can do extremely destructive things, and you should be comforted simply with that knowledge. Please stop making me afraid of reading e-mail.
