<font color='#0000FF'>Might not actually be from them. Many worms 'spoof' the sender's e-mail address, making it seem as though it came from people who may not be infected at all.

Is it the W32/Doom-A worm? Our IT department has been firing off warning e-mails and security patches for it today.

very good advice, and my own personal philosophy...

...but what's that got to do with computer viruses?

<font color='#000080'>The current "biggie" viruses that are doing the round have the ability to "spoof" email addresses, some can spoof whole addresses, others (like MyDoom) use genuine domain names, but spoof the persons name.
Whenever you think you have a computer virus, or receive a message warning you that a virus is doing the rounds, or has been caught in a message to or from you, check out one of the leading anti-virus companies virus libraries.
(I work for McAfee, so here is the link to McAfee Virus Information Library (VIL))
Simple advise is keep your anti-virus software up-to-date (on average, McAfee release 2-3 updates per week, if you haven't updated recently, do it now!

I had 58 emails this morning - 55 related to this latest poxy virus.

Information and a removal tool are available from Symantec. As far as I know this can be downloaded by anybody (if you do make sure you read the info on how to use the removal tool).

Another person in my black book under the list of people I'd like to give a 'kin good hiding to. Wouldn't it be great to buddy some novice only to find out they were a spammer or virus writer
