This is a multi-part message in MIME format.



A genuine Microsoft message would refer to their site to download from their site whatever patch the actual "attachment" would be, they would NOT include the attachment, in a message, since this is against the ethic about the Internet use.

I have received a lot of messages similarly to this between yesterday and
today, at least 15. They all as been rejected by mcAfee as viruses of
various kinds. A few days ago I begin to "remove" the "Spam" I receive.
I believe this is a coincidence.
Have someone had similar experiences?.

Thanks

Guillem

Hi,

Once the message is in the system, it may take quite some time before all the news servers inter-connected between themselves, receive the "destroy" messageID = ... After all. some servers are always slower than other.


XXX and $$$ messages are filtered out, and well filtered, you have to admit it, but it takes some time to coordinate all these people when a new "pattern" arrives.


Note that if it was just me, there would be an option to not download at all ANY message having ANY attachment... :-)

The sad part is, there are plenty of folks that find themselves at these
sites, understandably trusting, whose primary question might be on the level
of "which is better - Windows 95 or Windows 2000".

"Don't do something stupid" is not an appropriate justification for slipshod
security practices. This is simply adding to the damage this worm is doing
worldwide.

<End of complaint about the free service....>
