Replying to LO30903 --

The virus situation in the past three days is UNBELIEVABLE... the LO
inbox has received literally hundreds of copies.

For the next week, take a really hard look at any incoming message...
If it looks at all strange... Subject lines like hi, hello, status...
Trash it without opening. Do not click on attachments (some appear to
be text files, but are executable). Switch to an operating system
which has some safeguards (Apple or Linux).

Remember that you cannot depend on the "From:" address; it's so easy
to falsify.

Email is really a mess these days!
