Virus warning for Microsoft Outlook users

From: Marko Mäkelä (

The following message was bounced from the list due to unrecognized sender
address.  Even if the virus didn't make it to the list, I think that users
of Microsoft Outlook or Microsoft Outlook Express should be careful.

In the past few days, I have received several apparent virus attachments
from Outlook users.  One virus is about 4 kilobytes long (written in 80386
machine code) and rather harmless: when the message is opened in Outlook,
it'll send itself to all addresses listed in the address book.  (You don't
even have to open the attachment.)

In my opinion, this is another excellent example of how usability and
security are opposite goals.  Does anyone really need to have a scripting
language in a mail user agent program?
