    W32/Mimail(at)MM (6.0)

    I've just read about the W32/Mimail(at)MM worm in the news. Then I checked the Microsoft support site. Now I'm completely confused.

    Does anyone know about this and what we should do?

    Thanks.

    Hi Neal

    Update your Anti-Virus definition file and run your AV program. Most, if not all, AV software companies have updates to cover this virus as of today.
    If you don't have an AV program installed, you can download AVG Free Edition.
    Be sure to update the definition file after you install and before you run the scan.

    If you're interested in more protection.....don't use Internet Explorer or Outlook.....Post in Other Browsers and Email Clients for suggestions (I use Mozilla Firebird and Thunderbird).
    Use an anti-spam program.......post in Software Finds and wants for suggestions......(I like SpamCSI...it is a "work in process" and has a few bugs, but I find the tracing utilities more than compensate.)

    Have a Great day!!!
    Ken
