New virus going around!!!

From: Yuch .

Hi forumites,

There is a new virus going around at the moment.

If you receive an email with what appears to be a star wars screensaver attached that you are to delete it. The attached file is a virus that will startup outlook and forward the email onto all in your address book, if configured.

The email may look like this:

How are you ?
When I saw this screen saver, I immediately thought about you
I am in a harry, I promise you will love it!

Attachment: gone.scr

And, don't forget, it will probably appear to have come from a friend !!!!!!!

But your friend probably knows nothing about it.......

If you are not expecting such things, ring them and ask, or delete the bl**dy thing. If it was kosher, and your friend then asks "What did you think?" play dumb and ask them to send it again. It saves a lot of angst that way ;^)
