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.
