New Worm/Virus making the rounds

Have you noticed a few emails from support@microsoft.com in your Inbox today? If so, you might be seeing the latest worm/virus propogating across the Internet. Known as W32/Palyh and W32.HLLW.Mankx@mm, this worm, like others, attempts to infect your machine using an atttached file. If it succeeds, it looks for additional email addresses where it can send itself.

As always, update your anti-virus programs as soon as possible. Also, avoid any email that contains an attachment whose name ends in .PIF, .EXE, or .SCR.

If you have any further questions, drop me at line at douglas@welchwrite.com.
