Since most of you are not in the computer business end, thought you should know this....

We have been hit very hard by this latest one, I would assume that Chris
server will be too, so be patient if the messages take a bit to get


There are a rash of new viruses that have been introduced over the
weekend. Several of these viruses - at the moment - have found a way to
defeat most

anti-virus software. They come in as a file attachment in a password 
protected zip file that can not be opened by the virus software. The 
sender (most often a spoofed addresses - could be someone you recognize) 
sends the virus in zipped format and when you attempt to open it - you 
are zapped. In some case the password is included in the message. In 
other the password is a simple blank - by attempting to open the zip 
file you trigger it. 

DO NOT OPEN ANY FILES - unless you have CONFIRMATION that the file was 
sent to you by someone you know. ANY DOUBT DELETE!
