Hi there!

Sorry for the mundane content to follow, but I wanted to issue a warning about a virus that hit me at home last night.

I received the W32.Klez.E at mm worm from the kingdom's mail server last night. I've sent a note to Pug, but as of last night the kingdom server was not filtering this one out. The bug exploits a security flaw in Outlook Express and Internet Explorer and executed from the preview frame. Norton AntiVirus, with the latest definitions, caught it for me at work this morning (I was prepared for it by then), but my home machine got hit last night where I did not have the latest definitions.

Moral of the story: Be vigilant with your Anti-Virus software. Keep it up-to-date.
You can also update Outlook Express and Internet Explorer 5.01 and 5.5 to Service Pack 2 to address this security issue. The url for that is:

And now for something completely different......
