Subject: [McCAY] Update your AV software Now ! ( I mean right now) ( 12-19-2001
Date: Wed, 19 Dec 2001 20:39:48 -0800
This is a one-time heads up notice.
There are 3 new and one oldie and toughie
virii out "in the wild" Three are rated level 2
and one is rated level 1 ( low risk)
Please don't start numerous threads on the mailing list
on this subject. If there are more warning please
send direct to me for checking. Lets keep these
lists focused on genealogy. If you get an infected
message from someone then let me know so they can
be removed temporarily from the list.
All the AV software companies have updated their
databases. Norton just released their latest updates
this morning and could be more soon.
A: Get your virus definitions updated as of today ( and everyday)
B: They are purely an attachment virus ( so simpler to handle)
"don't open attachments"
Let's get ahead of this one and avoid the mess we had
two weeks ago :-)
See the following AV web pages describing the three
