In our house we call it a Bleeding Edge Virus Protection. Since most
viruses do arrive as attachments, and it does take some time for the
virus software company to recognize there is a virus and build a
protection for it, so even Virus Protection Software isn't useful when
these things first come out. So our downloaded e-mail readers don't open
attachments automatically and are quarantine it all until I accept and
store an attachment somewhere else.
Luckily, I don't get many of those in the Yahoo e-mail addresses, still
it can be a problem if a virus gets open before one notices.
Thanks for understanding.
