Tonight I want to call to your attention a new and dangerous computer virus.
This is the W32Naked@mm worm. It comes with an attachment that will likely be
labeled as NakedWife.exe. Please be absolutely certain that you do not open
this attachment, for it carries a very damaging payload. W32.Naked@mm is a
mass mailing worm that disguises itself as flash movie. This worm, after it
has attempted to email everyone in your Microsoft Outlook address book, will
attempt to delete several of your system files. This will leave the system
unusable, requiring a reinstall. That means that you likely will not be able
to reboot your computer, and will have to seek professional help to get your
machine up and running again. So, please when you see anything with "Naked
Wife" in a subject line or as an attachment, immediately delete it.
As usual we recommend that all our members scan their incoming messages by
subject line and source before proceeding to open your mail. This will help
you spot many incoming viruses. If you do not know the source, or the subject
looks suspicious, don't open it. Also, remember to keep the antivirus
software in your computer up to date. You can do this by going online to the
manufacturer's website. If your software has not been updated within the past
week, it is likely out of date and may not be able to detect the latest
viruses. Antivirus protection is only as good as your last online update.
Symantec Antivirus Research Center is rating the damage due to this worm as
"high" and its distribution "medium." That means that it is a virus that is
potentially very destructive and will likely be increasing in circulation.
For more information about this virus, you may go online to Symantec at:
Thank you for your kind attention.
