> To All My Family and Friends:
> There is a new virus (worm) going around. It comes as an attachment to an
e-mail message entitled "Letter from Grandma." The attachment is named
"Navidad.exe." It contains a virus known as "W32.Navidad." You can get a
description of the virus, with directions for removing it from your system,
from Norton AntiVirus at www.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/w32.navidad.
> If you get that "Letter from Grandma" message, DELETE IT IMMEDIATELY! Do
not attempt to open or execute the attachment. Also delete any other
message you might receive which has a "Navidad.exe" attachment.
> If you open the attachment, it will render your computer unusable while at
the same time broadcasting itself to everyone in your e-mail address book.
Furthermore, the worm is VERY DIFFICULT to remove from your computer.
> If it's too late, and you have already "caught" the virus, you have my
greatest sympathy. Unless you are a qualified computer specialist or
technician, you might as well shut down your computer and take it to someone
in your area qualified to help you.
