Not unless you opened up the virus on your server.

The virus is not a serious problem. All it does so far is send the email to everybody in your address book.

Viruses are starting to make me sick...

YET AGAIN, today I received another virus.

It tried to save itself to my pc and at the same time pretended that it wanted to make use of some image in my temporary internet files directory.

Which makes me worried, so I better be on my way and do a scan...

here's the virus info:

We had one poor customer send it to us 5 times in under a minute.
