Dear all,

I\'ve just received a strange e-mail from \"Claire\'s computer\" with \"Legal translation\" as the object. This email is written in English and related to English & German legal translations.

Don\'t know whether that\'s a mistake or not as the recipient indicated in the body of the message is \"Jean-Francis\" (strange name), but this message contains the Bugbear virus and should be deleted.

...on this topic (search the forums for \"Bugbear\"). The trouble with this worm is that the messages sent are random, created using a separate SMTP engine (installed by the worm), using a random combination of addresses and messages found on the infected machine.

I have posted detailed information on how this works on quite a few threads, such as this one:

Me too... Oct 26, 2002

I have become very careful since I know of Bugbear. And, indeed, yesterday I also get a mail from an unknown person about German-English translation. I could read it from the preview, and I deleted it without opening it.

You can download a very small programme that dtects and removes bugbear from your computer from that site.

Good luck
