You should check your sources before you post such messages to the
mailing list. (or anyone else for that matter.)

I did.  There is no mention of this on the CNN web site listed in
the message.  I would expect it to be home page news, but I also did a
search on 'computer virus'.  The latest entry was January 3.

Same for Microsoft.  I tried to look at the McAfee site, but they won't
let you hit the site without Javascript enabled, and I don't care to
view their site that bad.

The Symantec web site (Norton Anti-Virus) shows no new virus
discoveries since November 2000. (

Unless you can show some actual links to stories about this new virus
I'm going to have to file it under  Hoax.

The key words are "Please email this to all your friends."  I've still
never seen this in ANY message that deserved to be forwarded to
_anyone_ at all.  Do you realy think slipping an email to a few friends
and asking them to forward it would be the best way to publish this
information if it was real?
