    Mydoom Computer virus... Please protect yourselves

    Being that I work in a large computer firm, I have the foresight to certain things.

    I would like to warn you all regarding the latest virus spreading on the 'net. It had infected close to 4000 computers within 2 hours of it's discovery yesterday. Today, it's slowing down email and networks worldwide.

    More information is available here:

    Please download STINGER from McAfee, it will detect AND remove this virus, amongst others.
