New worm just discovered by Symantec.
It's come to me a couple of times but Norton Anti-Virus has dealt with it.

postcard.exe Dec 31, 2006

Hi Jack,
thanks for the warning. I received an e-mail entitled "Happy New Year" this afternoon with the attachment "postcard.exe". I deleted it as a matter of course, but only after hestitation as its my birthday tomorrow so I receive more mails from unknown senders than usual. According to Norton, this was w32.mixor.q.

Happy New Year to you,

regards,
Jill

Obscure names. Dec 31, 2006

For no apparent reason, I have recently received lots of e-mails dated Sept '06 from people with names like 'Azeineldine', 'Ghys', or 'Hera'! They contain an attachment and the password code: 'I love you'. They have been duly deleted.

Probably not the same problem, though. In any event, Happy New Year! And, Happy Birthday for tomorrow, Gillian!

Sara
xx
