NFC: Re: Virus Warning
What the virus does is pick a file at random from your "My Documents" folder
and emails that file along with a copy of the virus to everyone on your
address book. Since it picks any file at random it may send out something
that you might not want others to see. The file name will be real and end in
.doc, .xls or any other real file name but will then have another "." and
then 3 more letters. If you get something like this just delete it.
