A new Windows virus or worm appears to be spreading through spam. I
received two copies of the below "Snowhite and the Seven Dwarfs" joke
today. Attached to it was a file called "joke.exe" that Wired's email
scanner (AMaViS, at amavis.org) flagged with this error message: "Our
viruschecker found a VIRUS in your email"
I haven't attached the file in executable form because of the off chance
that a politech reader using Windows will click on it by accident. But
you know how to uudecode and ungzip it, you can find it at:
Two points: 1. Never click on .exe or .vbs files if you're running
(Those of us who use Linux mailreaders don't have this problem.) 2.
for congresscritters to use this (if it checks out) as more reasons to
"regulate" spam next session.
