- Minna sama--
My deepest and most humblest regrets, plus abject apologies to you all.
I have just found out I forwarded a virus to several of you, contained in an
attachment I stupidly sent on. It was that "Gore Xmas Present" thing...
I just spent 3 hours and some money tonight (on McAfee.com) trying to figure
this virus out, and it's a nasty one, highly persistent, tho it does NOT
cause drive damage of any sort.
The sneaky bastard hides in your auto.exe file, and signature file, plus in
the attachment I unwittingly forwarded to several people. (most on this
mass email never got it) I had to wipe out almost 1600 "sent letter" files,
plus all my signature files, clean my auto.exe file, and the sent letter
files were a tremendous loss since there was a ton of business information
in there I can't access ever again.
PLEASE accept my apologies! _o_ _o_ _o_
On the other paw, please take notice I will _NEVER AGAIN_ even _look_ at a
FWD: file, so don't send any to me. Period. Exclamation point.
Neither will I open an attachment from anyone in the future, unless they
state up front in the cover letter that _they_ and _they_ alone originated
it (as in a .gif or .jpg), and that it is not from some semi-anonymous web
source. (meaning it has addresses, but can't be verified since I don't know
the people personally)
I know everyone means well, but I've just been shot in the butt by some
well-meaning person, and even _worse_, I've spread the damned virus around
Please excuse me. _o_
Badger, on bended knee
