    Re: New virus? (OE5.5)

    Do you have ZoneAlarm and running the email protection?

    Re: New virus? (OE5.5)

    I can find a reference to "NEW_NAPSTER_site.TXT.pif" here at <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.europe.f-secure.com/v-descs/mtx.shtml>F-Secure</A>
    I would suggest great caution.

    Yes, and yes, Dave! I'd feel guilty reading my Woody's Office Watch if I didn't!

    Re: New virus? (OE5.5)

    Thanks, Leif - yes, looking at it, it does seem a bit bad! I suppose the .zlo suffix on mine is a version of this.

    I'll just delete it. Best all round.

    New virus? (OE5.5)

    Does anybody know what the suffix .zlo means? I just got an email from someone I've never heard of, with no subject and no message, just an attachment called new_napster_site.txt.zlo.

    Needless to say I didn't open it - the double suffix being one of the things Woody has been telling us about for years! - but I used to be a member of Napster and would like to read the attachment if it's genuine.

    By the way, I put this query on this board simply because I'm using OE, although I know it's not strictly related to the package, but I couldn't find anywhere else I might put it!

    Any comments appreciated.
