To ALL NACHI members and Visitors:
There is a virus going around. I know it may have been mentioned before but I talked with the FED on the phone today about it. If you receive an e-mail from:
Department@cia.gov,fbi.gov (some tool companies)(contractor companies)etc with an attchment DO NOT OPEN IT.
The file contains the W32.Sober.X@mm Virus sent in the !zip file.
I know some might say I have protection but this file will get into your anti-virus software (symantec,McAffee etc..) and not allow you to update any anti-virus or security technical information.
I have been working on this most of the day and have run all the programs to delete it. SYMANTEC has the tool available if you need it.
(symantec.com) if you have Norton go to Anti-Virus-Reports-Virus encyclopedia and get the info on the web.
The person I spoke with said they are close to nailing this SOB. Hope this helps all.
