Talking Bug Alert !

Just a gentle warning, probably one of many, but forewarned etc...
Apparently one of these virus thingies has been hiding, or whatever they do, in word docs, so if you get one e-mailed, don't open it!
You can tell I'm TI litterattte.

Viruses in MSWord documents are quite common - I receive one or two each month. I also receive the SnowWhite, W32/Magistr@MM and other viruses frequently, at least one or two occurances each week.

A few tips :
Treat with extreme caution any attachments to an email. I personally save them to a file and scan them. I never open MSWord documents, instead I ask the originator to resend me the document as plain text.
Keep your virus checker up to date. I update mine at least once each week.
Occasionally visit one or more antivirus sites to see what the virus writers are up to. and are good places to start.
