~ beware: virus ~

12 February 2001

i got sent email with virus attachment on my werk email. it’s been 5 minutes and there is already about 200 new emails with the same title sent by different people. so, if you read this, do not open email entitled Here you have, ;o)… that vbs file certainly is a virus. just like the usual virus, it forwards itself to everyone on yer address book.

Chris is still fiddling with it… curious on what it does. for your computer sake, maybe it’s better NOT to open any email attachment with .vbs extension. it usually contains virus.
