Tina, I can't explain what happened to you but I do have to agree with Fuzzy on this. Everything I am reading put out by the virus companies state that this virus is delivered in an attachment that has to be opened to infect the pc. Once infected it acts as a worm and starts spreading via email. It also opens up a port on the infected pc which can allow someone to connect and do many other things. Anyone who is presently not infected should be just fine if they update their virus software immediately. Also, this is a cloaking type of virus so infected systems will send e-mails from their system but it will grab email addresses from their address book and insert it into the from field showing the email to be from someone else. This means you might end up with some undeliverable messages on emails you never sent out.

I did not open it, but I did notice that the java player I installed for my son's Palm Pilot popped up in the system tray.. (I have a folder for the programs needed for his palm pilot, and have turned off any unnecessary programs from my start menu..) Then the file was sent to only one of my groups.. from my address.. and I found the 'virus' letter with attachment in my 'attachments' folder.. I wonder if someone found a way through my firewall.. It was really strange.. I have my computer well protected, and kept clean.. Oh, well.. just telling you all what happened to me.. No remnants remain..

Unlike some other worms, this one must be opened and the attachment executed to infect.
