AV software is only as good as its definitions.

 

Check out Symantec's web site for removal instructions.

Viruses such as these are only of risk if they're executed by your mail
client. Outlook 2003 doesn't allow this by default (you need to save the
file first), am I right to feel complacent? Of course I do have AV on the
mail gateway, I'm just polling to see how confident fellow admins are with
Outlook 2003's. Is it taking steps in the right direction to protect the use
from viruses such as this?

There is a new virus spreading rapidly. The AV vendors are working on it.

 

This one is going to be bad, as it is using zip attachments as well as pif,
scr and exe.

 

Be prepared.
