Thanks for the heads-up but I think you posted at the wrong forum?

Due to the topic it might belong in the Tech forum.
But since stopping virusses serves everyone I thought General discussion was the best place to warn as many people as possible for another new thread.
Since it might catch Norton Anti Virus users (for example) unaware since they will get info on this virus not before the next update (mostly sceduled wednessday or thursday) if they do not download new virus definitions right now.

Valid post in a valid place IMHO.

Well done!

This is causing havoc with mail servers in the UK.

I know of 1 person at my co who had 1700 mails with the virus........

Since the amount of infected messages get's more and more:

If you had a mail that looked like described above, check your system with this tool:
http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/w32.mimail.a@mm.removal.tool.html (or any other that is available)
