Re: Possible VIrus warning ...
People, I repeat that these attachments are not coming from killietalk. If
they claim to do so, someone is spoofing the address. I have not seen any
such messages, and I have search my hard disk for goal*.* and did not find
any such file.
Rawlin, I suggest that you show the offending message to your MIS people
and ask them to try to trace where it came from. Some malicious so and so
and besmirching the good name of killietalk to disseminate this file.
