W32/Sircam Virus on the loose

(August 2, 2001) I send this file to ask for your advice. Does this subject sound familiar? Good for you if you just deleted the email. If you clicked on the attachment? Sorry, but you just got infected. For more info on the virus, click on http://www.mcafee.com/anti-virus/viruses/sircam/default.asp?cid=2360

The Lesson? Never click on attachments which have .exe, .bat. They usually run scripts that contain worms/viruses. You are also not totally sure about other files too. To be safe, ask those who email you to just type or cut and paste the body of the attachment rather than insert an attachment in their mails to you.
