1.0 Virus Alert!

** Worm.ExploreZip **

A new Worm virus is spreading globally. This worm originated in
Israel on Sunday, and within hours Symantec AntiVirus Research Center
(SARC) had a fix for this malicious program.

Worm.ExploreZip is a worm that contains a malicious payload.  The
worm utilizes MAPI commands and Microsoft Outlook on Windows systems
to propagate itself.  The worm was first discovered in Israel and
submitted to the Symantec AntiVirus Research Center on June 6, 1999.

The virus definition updates released 6/9/99, dated 6/7/99, contain
full detection to protect from this worm. They are available for
downloading at http://www.symantec.com/avcenter/download.html or by
running LiveUpdate.

For more detailed information and removal instructions, please visit
http://www.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/worm.explore.zip.html.

** PrettyPark Worm **

This is a worm program that behaves similarly to Happy99 Worm. This
worm program was originally spread by email spamming from a French
email address. The program file attached to the spam is named
"PrettyPark.EXE". The original sample of this worm was submitted
through the exclusive NAV Scan & Deliver system on May 28, 1999, from
France.

Virus definition updates released today 6/9/99, dated 6/7/99, contain
the full detection for this worm. They are available for downloading
at http://www.symantec.com/avcenter/download.html or by running
LiveUpdate.
