      FWIW if You are interested.

      Viruses Still Causing Destruction

      In addition to the holiday-oriented viruses, the following viruses are
      still being monitored W32/Hybris.gen@M, W95/MTX.gen@M and W32/ProLin@MM.
      McAfee AVERT (Anti-Virus Emergency Response Team) has received more than
      500 reported cases of the Hybris worm alone in the past 45 days, including
      reports from Fortune 500 companies.

      McAfee AVERT suggests users observe the following precautions to avoid
      holiday threats:

      -- Delete suspicious emails from unknown senders.
      -- Be suspicious of all email with attachments.
      -- Use an email scanning anti-virus package and update it regularly.
      -- Back-up critical information stored on your computer.
      -- Avoid downloading information from unknown websites and newsgroups.
      -- Only disclose important financial information, such as credit card
      numbers, if you are certain the website is secure.





      Interesting Bit of Info here:


      -- Finally, consider saving your Microsoft Word files as Rich Text Format.
      RTF files do not support macros, which account for the vast majority of
      virus problems.
