which virus is this?
Posted on 2003-11-11
I get a lot of messages like
this is the latest version of security update, the "November 2003, Cumulative Patch" update which resolves all known security vulnerabilities affecting MS Internet Explorer, MS Outlook and MS Outlook Express as well as three newly discovered vulnerabilities. Install now to protect your computer from these vulnerabilities, the most serious of which could allow an attacker to run code on your computer. This update includes the functionality of all previously released patches.
and theres usually some attachment like install254.exe or whatever
obviously these are bogus..
even though I download my email from my yahoo pop acc, it seems these are generated from elsewhere (I have seen it going to my yahoo as well).. I suspect some macro or exe is at work.
any idea what one is to do? I have AVG but it doesnt seem to detect these email viruses I think
