    Ok, who all has gotten this piece of shit? I just got it from someone that I know, but of course they didn't send it. I know Unchained Wolfie has had the problem (people thought he sent it), so who else has had it sent using their email addy? How does this virus do that? Anyone know. [img]smilies/confused.gif[/img]

    I work for a major ISP in Niagara Canada. Users in Niagara have been overwhelmed with this bastard "worm". I myself, have been getting a dozen or so a day! Scan with a good AV scanner and make sure your Virus definitions file are up to date!

    One of it's more scary "features" is it's ability to select a random file or document from your hard drive, then mass email it to the recipients in your Outlook Address book. In one such case, where a fella was looking for a new job, the "Sircam Worm" sent a copy of his cover letter that was intended for his future employer, to his current boss. He got fired the next day. [img]smilies/scared.gif[/img]

    Anyhow, here some useful information, protect yourselves, this one is all over the net right now!

    Sircam Worm
    The Sircam Worm (W32.Sircam.Worm@mm) threat has been upgraded, be on HIGH ALERT. If you receive this email message, DO NOT OPEN THE ATTACHMENT! This worm arrives as an email message with the following content:

    Subject:
    The subject of the email will be random, and will be the same as the file name of the email attachment.

    Attachment:
    The attachment is a file taken from the sender's computer and will have the extension .bat, .com, .lnk or .pif added to it.

    Message:
    The message body will be semi-random, but will always contain one of the following two lines (either English or Spanish) as the first and last sentences of the message.
    First line: Hi! How are you?
    Last line: See you later. Thanks

    Between these two lines, some of the following text may appear: "I send you this file in order to have your advice", "I hope you can help me with this file that I send", "I hope you like the file that I sendo you", "This is the file with the information that you ask for".

    If you believe you may already have been infected, removal instructions and a free removal tool are available from the Symantec AntiVirus Research Center Website.

    I haven't got any e-mails like that thankfully. This topic is more suited to Non-Music, i'm moving it there.
    Right Now you're reading my post!

    i got had by this bug. the only thing that saved me was that i have a hotmail address, and they use mcaffee, plus i have mcaffee on my computer as well, and when i tried to download it, the file simply wouldn't open. i was lucky. [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]
    however, i know this sounds cynical, but at least this virus doesn't harm your computer, it just is a pain in the ass.

    Just for the record..I recieved this worm in an email supposedly from the webmaster at army. Luckily, NAV caught it, and it was deleted. If you haave Norton AutoProtect enabled, you should be ok. Also, as said before..Symantec website can tell you who will be most affected.

    Thats a virus e-mail?!?!? [img]smilies/scared.gif[/img] [img]smilies/scared.gif[/img] [img]smilies/scared.gif[/img] [img]smilies/scared.gif[/img]
    I just got it from some guy at school that I never talk to but just know who he is....I was curious so I tried to open it but the computer wouldn't let me.
    Gozer the Traveller will come in one of the pre-chosen forms. During the rectification of the Vuldronaii the Traveller came as a very large and moving Torb. Then of course in the third reconciliation of the last of the Meketrex supplicants they chose a new form for him, that of a Sloar. Many Shubs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Sloar that day I can tell you.

    Uh, well then. [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]
    If you tried to open it, you've probably got it. I would check into it a little more if I were you. Look at the links I gave near the top of this page. This thing won't trash your system, but is capable of some other nasty stuff.
