Warning with Scenarios.

Hey all

I just thought I would remind everyone to always check their downloads before sending them into the hard drive.

With EVERY scenario I am sent for my website, I always check them for any kind of virus. So far, 3 people have sent files with a Virus attached, one called a 'BadHumour' virus for which there is not a cure.

If you don't have a virus protection on your system, create a HOTMAIL account. It's free and it always scans any attachements for a virus.

badhumour? never heard of it, it's not listed with Sophos!
Not a cure? Don't believe that, what does it do, what files does it infect, and are these virii contained within the scenario files themselves or are they seperate entitys?

More information on the virus.


I got the name wrong...its 'BadTrans.B' and has a txt file attached with it.

It has already infected 25,000 computers in its first 24 hours and 1.5 million of BT's naff Openworld have also been infected (source: Metro newspaper Wed 28 Nov)

quote:
'It is activiated by previewing it in Microsoft Outlook and uses he potentially devastating trick of replying to UNREAD messages.'

I have had it sent twice and it AUTOMATICALLY wants you to open the file. DO NOT OPEN THIS FILE. It sets a path straight into your IE5/6 temp folder file. JUST DELETE IT STRAIGHT AWAY.

One was sent attached to a Scenario file, so just becareful.
