Re: Re: virus warning
Actually point 2 is not quite accurate. I don't want to be
an alarmest, but consider this:
There is a virus that infects 'MS Word' documents. It is
embedded in a feature of 'Word' that allows macros to
execute automatically once a 'Word' document is opened.
The virus renders the default 'Word' template unreadable.
Any attached 'Word' documents (send via e-mail) which are
opened and read with 'Word' would infect your 'Word'
default template (if you have this automatic feature
enabled). So, a WORD to the wise, be careful out there.
