Default friendly warning

Nasty bugbear virus is back, and this one is poly morhphic. Here's some info:

A new high-risk virus called W32/Bugbear.b@MM has been increasingly
prevalent during the past 24 hours. This virus is spread through infected
emails, primarily by opening infected attachments.

It is a malicious virus that can disable security software on a computer,
and even allow someone to take control of an infected computer.

W32/Bugbear.b@MM attempts to install a keylogger program, which can record
your keystrokes, including your passwords, and subsequently pass the
information on from an infected system. This virus is very difficult to
clean up.

This is so wide spread on the internet, and happened so quickly, this
even made the front page at CNN (http://www.cnn.com). Expect it on the
news broadcasts tonight also. A very nasty virus.


This virus affects almost all versions of Microsoft Windows,
including Windows 95/98/NT/2000/XP and ME. This virus does
not affect Macs or Unix/Linux machines.

So your best bet is to NOT open email attachments, unless you are really
sure of who sent them to you and you are expecting
the attachment. And make sure you have the latest anti-virus
software installed and DAT files as well.

Actually, your best bet is to use *nix or Macs (also *nix) for email.
