Re: [Groop] Just incase you didn't know already... Virus Alert

Yup, half the navy (with lan systems) were shut down this morning because of this... at least two commands here on my base got infected... be careful, especially those on a lan system.

Do not open an email with the subject of "I LOVE YOU"

The attachment is a virus that will destroy all .JPG and .MP3 files on your
computer and then look for you email address book and send itself to all
your known email addresses.

It is indeed real. It's on the news. It started in Hong Kong and has
already made it to America in no time. I work for the 2nd largest ISP in
the nation, 4000+ employees, we are on a Microsoft exchange server (this is
all geek information) and one person in the company opened the attachment
and now the virus has infiltrated the exchange server... so I had several
hundred emails waiting for me..

I find all rather funny, though!

But just a warning for those of you that aren't up to date on this
things... this one is not a hoax... it's real.

(And yes I'm a bonafied computer geek!)
