Re: [sharechat] Viruses

I will second that.   I received a dubious missive purported to have been returned from me and infected.   The recipient was nothing
to do with me.   I did the usual and then used Symantec formula.  I needed help as not the tops in this
area.    So relieved - nothing in my system

I have used the Symantec site twice before and found it excellent, easy to follow instructions for virus removal, etc.

Just a brief note about novarg/mydoom, currently doing the rounds ... 
it has a number of different subject headers designed, of course, to 
get people infected: test, hi, hello, Mail Delivery System, Mail 
Transaction Failed, Server Report, Status, Error. I suspect that Mail 
Delivery System and Mail Transaction Failed are two that will catch 
many people, as we're all interested when an email we've sent bounces 
back at us.

If you're affected, more information is available here:
