> Good Morning,
>  The information below is good advice and please remember it before
>  taking *any* action.
>  First, don't believe every virus warning you receive. Many of them are
>  false but are in a format or with false creditionals that leads most
>  people to believe them. If you get one, please check the sites below
>  to see if it is valid. Many of these you will find verbatim as being
>  a hoax that is either new or been around many years.
>  Second, if you get an attachment from someone that you are not
>  suspecting, do not open it. Verify what the person sent you was meant
>  for you and what the content is.
>  Third, ensure that your Anti-Virus software is always current. I
>  actually have mine download updates daily due to the rapid discovery
>  of new viruses right now.
>  Finally, if you are in doubt, please feel free to contact me via email
>  at pug at pug.net before forwarding any information on. In general I will
>  know about many items such as this before others due to some mailing
>  lists that I monitor.
>  This message, or a modified version of it, will be posted through the
>  Announce list on a quarterly basis. Those list administrators who wish
>  to include it on their lists not included in this regular posting are
>  welcome to.
