We received a virus from someone and like good disease carriers it was handed right back out. This one comes in as an attachment and as soon as we opened it began its evil plan. Opening is something I almost never do, but did because it was in a weird place, so don't open attachments is my advice. This virus immediately starts replying to every e mail that comes in (finally there is some revenge for spam) and sends out the virus to everyone. So: our e mail is down and we are not sending any until repaired. Our Norton Anti Virus Software had not been auto updated and this is a new virus called badtrans32 etc. so even with the software we were not protected. You need to update all the time. We now are on auto update! If you have never had an e mail virus: I can tell you that you'll appreciate good virus protection in an entirely different light. Aak! Aak! Mars Attacked! I need some yodeling!

I received a couple of messages from DR, and the attachments had viruses. The McAfee found it before I opened it, so I'm safe.
