Blegh! - Another Virus/Worm spreading

I just received two strange zip file attachments along with some jibberish.
Don't open them.
(I'm notorious for getting this crap).
Link to NET site: Network Associates
Apparently spreading pretty quick.

LOL, started off with someone wanting a picture of me in my Bohn armor.
I sent them this: me

I haven't received any more weird emails so far. I carpool with a guy who works at Network Associates. He warned me too.
I can't afford another hard drive since the last virus destroyed it.

Re: Blegh! - Another Virus/Worm spreading

Concerning virus and spam emails.....what do you all think about Bill Gates' statement last week where he predicted that spam and virus emails will be virtually eliminated in 2 years?

Got it from my site too, email addresses that don't exist. Maybe that's why I was having issues with the forum.

Re: Blegh! - Another Virus/Worm spreading

LOL! RC, what the hell is this one, you in a chastity belt on steroids?

BTW, I have received a virus both yesterday and today - same one I think, but under different file names. Yesterday was data.htm ([email protected]). Today was file.pif ([email protected]). Good ole Norton caught them though. Is this the virus you are all talking about, or something else?
