I quote from Sylvain Leray (Peer Translator) who posted this in:



\"Hello,

I just received a mail from \"support@microsoft.com\" subject \"Re:Approved (Ref. 3394-65467)\", with an attached file \"screen_temp.pif\". Norton Antivirus did\'nt \"say\" anything, but I made the update for virus definitions and it then \"told\" me it is a virus.



Have a nice day!

Sylvain\"



So if you receive an email with attachment from: support@microsoft.com, be careful it contains a worm.



Salam

Ouadoud



P.S: Thanks Sylvain.

Yes, I received these e-mails from microsoft and as the e-mail address was a microsoft one, thought it ok and opened it.

The above is an address where you can download a fix if you have been infected.
