Computer users activating the file attached
in the e-mail invoke the virus, which then harvests e-mail addresses found on the computer's hard drive.
The new virus will be carried in a file attached
to an e-mail message titled ''Re: Your password!'' If the file is opened, the virus will cause the computer to visit certain Web sites automatically, the software firms said.
If you receive an unsolicited email with a RTF file attached
, view it with suspicion.
Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the STL file attached
, and the file will be converted and returned via e-mail so that it can be evaluated with CastView.
When users open and execute the Clip.zip file attached
to the e-mail the worm will be activated and attempt to spread to other e-mail accounts.
The worm arrives as a '.zip' file attached
to an e-mail and has to be opened manually to infect a computer.
The worm itself is hidden as a CREATIVE.EXE file attached
to the message.
