LOL. You are cracking me up today. Nobody is going to want to open any emails now. They're going to call IS for every single legitimate email that looks even a bit strange.

Oh Joy.
Oh, you want to crack up? How about yesterday our univ. president announcing his departure at 3 p.m., and a campus-wide email announcing the president will be making a speech at 3 p.m., only it arrives an hour later?

He did. Those in the know were told it was going to be on television, but he did a webcast instead.

Well, I think there was a mentioning of Intel getting hammered with it and was offline as well.

Just goes to show that the level of Computer Security Education is as high as the education level in the US... Which is an all time low.

My only criticism is the fact that the way the computer has now been treated like it is now like a refrigerator (And yes... there was one person who did call tech support somewhere a long time ago and thought the computer just worked by plugging it in.) People treat it now like a black box and not really take into consideration a lot of things they shouldn't do.

The last job I was at, I would send out messages about that, and what gauls me more is the fact that there are Mac and Linux people who say, "We don't have viruses" and the fact is, actually you do... Not as prolific as Windows now, but you do have issues that you can't sit there like you are in a fortress of solitude and the most likely vector of any virus or malware is going to be the part of the computer that exists between the Keyboard and Chair!

The ABF Shared Service Centre have been tracking a new, malicious computer virus that spreads using an e-mail attack. The Virus is beginning to become more widespread.



The virus arrives via e-mail and has a subject line of “Here You Have” and asks the recipient to click on a link embedded in the e-mail. This link points to a malicious program file disguised as a PDF (Adobe Acrobat) file.



When the user clicks on this link, their computer instantly downloads and launches the Virus. This process also installs the virus onto the victim’s computer without the user knowing!



Once running on the computer, the Virus attempts to e-mail a copy of the original e-mail to all e-mail addresses found in the infected user’s e-mail address book.



The Virus also attempts to spread from computer to computer over the local network (to other machines on your home or office network) by copying itself to open drive shares found on other machines on the network.



Once the Virus copies itself to another machine, if a user opens the folder that contains the Virus on this new machine, this will launch and cause it to spread further through both e-mail and over shared drives.



To mitigate the risk to the ABF Infrastructure, we have confirmed that both our Perimeter Email Protection system and our Symantec Anti Virus Solution, running the latest updates, will detect and eradicate the Virus.



If you receive an email with the subject line “Here You Have”, it should be deleted immediately.
