      Hola kolegov�,

      nev�m, jak tenhle trik bude fungovat, protoze aktivniho vira jsem tu zatim nemel, ale postup vypada logicky a za pokus myslim stoji.

      ahoj

      Here's a computer trick today that's very important and ingenious in its
      simplicity. As you may know, when/if a worm virus gets into your computer
      it heads straight for your email address book and sends itself to everyone
      in there, thus infecting all your friends and associates.

      This trick won't keep the virus from getting into your computer, but it
      will stop it from using your address book to spread further, and it will
      alert you to the fact that the worm attacked your system.

      First:
      Open your address book and click on "new contact" just as you
      would do if you were adding a new friend to your list of email
      addresses. In the window where you would type your friend's first name
      type in !000 (exclamation mark followed by 3 zeros).

      Two:
      It will be undeliverable because of the phony email address you entered (WormAlert) and your contacts will not be infected.

      Three:
      If an email cannot be delivered, you will be notified of this in your InBox almost immediately, and know that the Virus is now on your system.

      Four:
      You can then disinfect your system without having harmed your friends
