Our Precautions against virus attack.
- I thought that I should mention that I recently tightened up our "Settings",
to exclude attachments. This has the effect also of preventing the sending
of HTML messages thro our list. I felt that this was a precaution that would
have your general support at the present time. We can always relax our
guard if things quieten down.
However, I also want to warn you all of a message I have just received
from McAfee, I am now a subscriber to the McAfee.com Dispatch service.
This warning was about "W32/ProLin@MM" which apparently is an
Internet worm that spreads via email. McAfee Avert give this a risk
assessment of Medium to High Risk. The mail comes in an attachment
named CREATIVE.EXE, which carries the icon of a Shockwave Media
Player application. DO NOT run this attachment, which may say
something like "Subject - A Great Shockwave flash movie"
I dare say that Norton will be responding similarily.
Take care - you have been warned!
