    Re: Virus on WOW newsletter (Office97)

    Was the virus really there, or did the Auntie Virus software clain that there was a virus?

    Don't believe the AV software, one needs to examine the newsletter itself.

    I believe that it must have been a false positive. I can't see how you would get two infections in the same message. (Redis & Goner are both worms actually raher than virus).

    I'm not allowed access to the file itself but our IT people cut and pasted the text of the message to me. When I tried sending it to my home account it hit the secruity. I then tried deleting all the URLs

    Does that mean they block messages *warning* you about virus containing emails because the messages contain the text to look out for???

    Yep it look's like that's the case. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15> Note, however, that the text string in question that triggered the false positive makes a funny use of spaces and if you were sending a warning message you may not use the exact text.
