Wed Mar 3 09:17:51 PST 2004 — VIRUS ALERT. A new variant of the Beagle virus was released yesterday. The virus spreads through an email attachment and is hidden in an attached zip file. UPDATE – This virus has been mutating extensively, and we are unable to block it’s many variants at this time. In addition, most PC anti-virus software is not blocking this virus.
That said, it requires quite a bit of user interaction for the PC to be infected. Uses must open the encrypted ZIP using the password, then run the enclosed program. Needless to say, DON’T DO THIS. The virus may pose as a communication from your ISP or mail service provider, and may include text which indicates that a security or virus problem requires that you open and execute the file. Don’t be fooled!
