It came from clarksniper@home.com Just a warning to other members to not open the attachments if you get an email talking about party pictures and asking to make some color prints.

A warning I just got on this virus : There's another new virus out there that you should all be aware of. It's called My Party, and is a combination Trojan horse / worm type. If a computer is infected, the virus will do various unsavory things to the machine, and will send email out to all contacts in the Windows address book, as well as any Outlook Express folders, in order to spread the virus. This means that the virus may just as easily come to you from someone you know as from a stranger. ... There are two variations so far, the descriptions that follow apply to both. Subject of email: new photos from my party! Attachment name: myparty.photos.yahoo.com, or www.myparty.yahoo.com Message: The message may be as follows: Hello! My party... It was absolutely amazing! I have attached my web page with new photos! If you can please make color prints of my photos. Thanks! If you receive an email fitting this description, DO NOT open it, double-click on it, attempt to read it or examine the attachment, or open the attachment, etc. Instead, delete the mail at once, making certain to empty your email trash as well to completely remove it from your system. If you have any concerns regarding a suspicious email, play it safe! ...

NEVER open ANY attachment unless you know the sender AND expect the attachment. This includes especially attachments ending in .com, .exe, or .bat. Get an anti-virus program and set it to update itself regularly. If you can't sh1tcan Outlook/Outlook Express, at least check the MS website weekly for security updates. More info on the picture virus, including how to remove it if you catch it, is at [url]www.sarc.com[/url]. -hanko

[url]www.grisoft.com[/url] caught this one just from the way it looked. No "signature file" yet. Last night, I got the first virus & a warning in rapid succession. Updated today and there's the sig file for it. Highly recommend Grisoft. Free off the web with free web updates. Best yet, it works.

Must be rampant. I just deleted it too. I didn't even see who it came from. My first virus.

I just got one Friday with a subject of 'variable is set' from a RaeDraper. Before I even opened it, Norton Anti-Virus caught it as the W32.Magistr.24876@mm virus. The e-mail had an attachment called COMSMD.EXE.
