Mydoom started spreading tonight, [URL=]F-Secure[/URL] has given it a Level-1 alert. This virus spreads only via e-mail as an attachment so as long as your antivirus definitions are updated you are protected.

So did i, is it that e-mail saying: HI! or STATUS or TEST...with a stupid virusy looking attachment?

don't feel bad Agissi, about all I ever get anymore are the Interscan notices from my mail server stating that they have been blocked, or I get the email part but the attachment is filtered out. Apparently my ISP has a pretty decent virus scanner in place on the mail server.
