Boy, well put Pam. :O) You better duck now Don. :O) Bob Noble www.sonic.net/bnoble ----- Original Message ----- From: "Pam" <ltf01@xxxxxxxxxx> To: <pcductape@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Monday, May 12, 2003 8:12 PM Subject: [pcductape] Re: Protect yourselves | Hi Don, | | The specifics of this virus are both unimportant and unknown. | | Unimportant because the purpose of the alert was exactly as you stated, to | remind folks to keep their virus protection up to date, which you obviously | know how to do. But everyone on this list is not as experienced as you. | Some are very new to computers. My message was intended as a helping tool | for those who don't know or haven't yet learned these things. | | Unknown, because freelists was kind enough to strip off the attachment, | thereby disabling the threat and the ability to track down the identity of | the virus. The headers of the sender were also altered, having gone through | freelists' servers. In addition, some viruses are capable of spoofing the | sender's identity. Not being able to identify the virus makes us not be | able to know in this case. | | In the future, if something posted to the list does not apply to you please | do not assume it was aimed at you since you are not the only person on this | list. | | | | -Pam To unsubscribe from this list send an email to pcductape-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with 'unsubscribe' in the Subject field OR by logging into the Web interface.
