Just spent 2 hours cleaning it up from our network. Somone from work opened it. It was a TXT attachment. Title was Stages of Life. Showed up in Norton as Bloodhound.Vbs.Worm. This one is a b*tch.

Got Flak?

Yep, the Air Force just spent all morning and this afternoon cleaning the systems out. But nothing was damaged. Geez, do people have anything better to do than screw with our systems. Many of you spent hard earned dollars for your system only to have it played with by some geek. I hope they catch this person and rack em.

I hate to brag, but I was spared from ILOVEYOU and the many copycats, including this one. Those are the advantages of not giving out your E-mail address.

I also hate to brag but I was spared by all of the PC-centric viruses in that I own a mac and never use outlook, heh my PC's that I have to service were having **** fits though pissed me off, people use our internet access computers to create online e-mail accounts then they open virus mail and screw everything up. Im gonna kick the next persons *** that does this for sure.

I am the one...and you
are not!

Why do they call
apartments "apart" if
they are all right next to

I've never contracted a virus via e-mail. I never open anything from someone I don't know, but sometimes a virus will spread from a friend whos entire contact list was mailed. In this instance I've either recognised the virus (thanks to you good people ) or I've just been plain lucky not get one. Most of my mates are pretty well clued up with these things so I'm less likely to end up with a virus anyway.

I have had CIH once though.... fu.cking thing wiped me out twice ( I got it from a dodgy copy of Dune 2000, over 2 years ago and me and my LAN group were amoungst the first in the world to be hit)
