Before you read the below, I'd just like to caution you that someone is using my handle and flower, so in the future, I'm going to be signing off with this pink dash because I think it might be difficult to duplicate:

It's good advice to NEVER open any attachment to an e-mail unless you know the purpose of the attachment and that the attachment is form a trusted source. Even with this caveat, it's still a good idea to scan all attachments before opening regardles of the source.
This is a Link to more info on the Pretty Park worm.

You are about a stupid ugly bitch(no offense to female dogs intended) this virus came out on a Sophos alert a month ago. If you haven't anything worthwhile or up to date to contribute then just keep your ugly ass mouth shut.

Manny, it's not always possible to thoroughly research an item before posting it. Moreover, there may be folks who weren't previously familiar with this virus and would appreciate the information.

Thanks Laura! I had NOT heard of it. That is one more post/reason why I appreciate this forum.
(Ignore Manny...don't gratify him with a response.)

just select View, then Source, and the html source code will be revealed.

Mumsie, I suppose some people wouldn't believe this because they don't know me, but I am a kind-hearted woman who wants the best for most people. I hope none of us gets a virus! (Even Manny... the meanie,)
"Just an", (that's so close to my nephew's name) what else do you suggest I do?
