    It's a hoax. It's not real. No such virus. Check www.mcafee.com if you want. 'Nuff said.

    Big Mike the network man has spoken! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]Hey Mike...we've been using Norton 7.5 corporate. It's good stuff.
    CHICAGO WHITE SOX - 2005 WORLD CHAMPIONS

    The Chicago White Sox (1901-present) - The Original SOX - Proof

    The Boston Americans (1901)
    The Boston Somersets (1902)
    The Boston Pilgrims (1903-1906)
    The Boston Red Sox (1907-present) - Proof

    The Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets whatever you want to call them, have NEVER displayed "SOX" anywhere on their caps, jerseys, or merchandise, therefore they shouldn't be referred to as such. However, the White Sox have used "SOX" since 1912.

    The SOX are in Chicago...we just allow the Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets to use the name.

    Hoaxes can be even more dangerous than viruses themselves.

    What's even worse is if some hacker capitalizes on the relief that it's a hoax - they'll really create the virus file and unleash it on the world [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]

    Don't worry about it Angel. You were obviously trying to help all of us out. I'd imagine that the powers that be might leave this open just so everyone might realize that it's only a hoax. And besides, between JWS and Goo, we've got some serious help here on the links. Out.

    Brother t 5 always comes correct with a summary of the situation at hand.

    This will remain open so that anyone else who got the message Angel did can learn that it's just a hoax.

    Thanks for the heads up, Angel.

    Sorry Angel. I didn't mean to belittle your obviously good intentions. I was just trying to head off a potential panic. By all means, everyone should take any virus warning seriously until proven otherwise.

    No problem Mike! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] Not too long ago, I was sent a virus (have no idea who sent it) and I have a few good friends that keep getting them sent to them [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img] I didn't even think to check to see if it was bogus....it's all good.

    And, thanks to whoever changed the title of my thread [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]
